This summer, take yourself to the
next level. Learn from the masters.

Immerse yourself for a week on one of five beautiful campuses with some of the best pipers and pipe band drummers in the world. Receive intensive personal instruction in multiple small classes (5 students or less) at all levels, beginning to advanced, for individuals and pipe bands, on the Great Highland pipes, smallpipes, Scottish snare, tenor drum, and bass drum. Plus workshops, music sessions, presentations on choice piping and drumming topics, and friendships that can last a lifetime. Balmoral students have the option of taking the EUSPBA's PCP (Progressive Certification Program) course and examination for certification at various skill levels.

We are pleased to announce the addition of
Donald McBride (Highland bagpipes),
Willie McCallum (Highland bagpipes), and Will Sexton (tenor drum) to our family of outstanding instructors and our 2011 schedule. Download our 2011 brochure.
