Mark your calendar and plan to join us for this NEW monthly event!

“In the Zoom Where it Happens” starts soon (see schedule below) and is hosted by the Northern Branch of WUSPBA.

Each month we plan to begin with reminders about upcoming events and contests, discuss great online resources, cover a tune and then just hang out to discuss something fun in the world of piping and drumming.

To start, we’ll focus on WUSPBA’s list of Recommended Piobaireachd for Grade 4 pipers and are grateful for the teachers (listed below) who are volunteering to help navigate us through a tune each month. The featured presenters include piping instructors, adjudicators, and professional competitors from throughout WUSPBA.

We hope to have at least 20-30 minutes at the end of each Zoom session just to hang out since we all miss in-person contests and we miss each other. In January, our hangout topic is going to be “how do you overcome performance jitters? What’s worse, solos or band competition?”
