Education

Piping & Drumming Qualifications Board

The Branch organised very successful Drumming Workshops in 2007 and 2008 and hopes to build further on that by holding PDQB Classes in Autumn 2009. The RSPBA Structured Learning courses have been replaced by PDQB qualifications - supported by many organisations including the RSPBA, SQA and Army School of Piping. More information >>
