“In the Zoom Where it Happens” is a free monthly event hosted by the Northern Branch of WUSPBA.

Each month we plan to begin with reminders about upcoming events and contests, discuss great online resources. For the main part of the session, a presenter will cover a tune or another educational topic. We will end with questions for our presenter or general piping and drumming discussion. Past presenters include piping instructors, adjudicators, and professional competitors from throughout WUSPBA, as well as the occasional guest presenter from outside of WUSPBA.

In 2021 and 2022, we had a series of presentations covering the WUSPBA Recommended Piobaireachd for Grade 4 pipers. We are extremely grateful for the various teachers (listed below) who volunteered their time and expertise to help navigate us through each of the tunes on this list.
