Fall Classes Begin September 12th
Instructor: Campbell Webster
Campbell Webster has been piping for 14 years and is the youngest professional piper in the US. At age 18, he has accomplished much in piping. From performing in military tattoos in Switzerland to competing in the World’s Pipe Band Championships and winning many major amateur awards as a solo piper, Cam has a wealth of experience that he likes to share. Also a Professional Drum Major and a Snare drummer, Campbell hopes to offer these classes in the Fall.
Instruction will include scale memorization, some easy first tunes to encourage learning by ear as well as by notes and basic embellishments for beginners. Pipers with some experience will cover correction of technique, how to learn tunes quickly and efficiently, getting up on pipes and timing. Accomplished pipers will work on technique and tone.
Band music for PFFNH Pipe Band will be available and all pipers are welcome to come and visit the band practices.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in the classes and what time. Include your experience if any. We do have chanters to borrow for the course so let us know if you need one and we will have Gibson chanters for sale at the first class.
