This is the best chance you will have in Australasia to improve your knowledge and skills of the Big Music with two of the best exponents and teachers. Don’t miss it!
On a personal note, I’ve been to two of these seminars before and they are brilliant. Excellent for beginners, experts and enthusiasts. Phil Mair
Makoura Lodge, Apiti 6th to 9th April 2015
This seminar is suitable for piobaireachd enthusiasts at all levels to extend their depth of knowledge and appreciation of this great music. It follows on from the Hastings Highland Games 4th and 5th April 2015.
The programme will include tuition, workshops, performance and social events. The seminar is being held at the idyllic Makoura Lodge in Apiti renowned for its great food, hospitality and scenery.
You will learn new tunes and improve your technique, interpretation and presentation.
To impart this knowledge we are arranging to have two of the world’s leading authorities, who are also two of Donald Bain’s pupils . . .
The cost will be no more than NZ$400* which includes accommodation and wonderful meals!
*We are currently working on funding applications to reduce this but even at $400 this represents exceptional value for money. (As a comparison the RNZPBA summer school costs $810 for tuition accommodation and meals).
Please supply the following information and pay your $50 deposit by 30th November to reserve your place. Balance will be due no later than 6th April.
