The College of Piping California Summer School 2018
15th – 22nd June
Registration is now open for the College of Piping’s 47th California Summer School. Held once again at the Army and Navy Academy of Carlsbad – a superb, beachside location conducive to learning – this is the ideal location in which to improve on your piping and drumming.
This school offers intensive instruction by professional instructors in each discipline. The instructors this year are, from left to right: Bruce Hitchings BEM MBE, Aaron Shaw, Pipe Major Colin Armstrong, Ed Best and Ross Naismith.
The school is open to all ages and to all levels of skill from beginners to competing players. Each student is placed in a class of six-eight students within their level of experience and skill level. Optional classes are offered in the afternoon, such as pipe band techniques, bagpipe and reed maintenance, and pibroch.
Most evenings we will have a lecture by one of the instructors followed by a recital by another instructor. Here’s a snapshot of the 2017 school:
The Army and Navy Academy is a military prep school during the regular school year. Its campus is located on beachfront property in the beautiful resort town of Carlsbad, in North San Diego County.
An early-bird discount of $25.00 is available now. In addition, groups of five or more, such as pipe band members, will attract a group discount of $25.00 per person.
