Our residential summer school takes place at the Barony College, near Dumfries.
The school is a chance for youngsters to work with specialist tutors and take their musical skills to a new level. It is an intensive five day programme and lots of fun too!
Amongst our tutors are some of the finest pipers and drummers in Scotland.
Workshops are held in various venues across the region. We are always looking for more places to hold our events. If you would like us to start workshops in your town or village, let us know. Click on the link to see if there is one near you!
