Cadets from our Pipes and Drums detachment will be joining around 200 cadets at the Cadet Piping and Drumming Concentration to be held at Cameron Barracks, Inverness, from this Saturday 8th April.
The week long learning package delivers not only first class tuition but all cadets are also given the opportunity to achieve Star Level Awards (Music), Music Proficiency Awards and Piping and Drumming Qualification Board/Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) Certificates dependant on their level of competency. During the week over half of those attending will achieve a full award whilst all attendees will complete various modules towards a full award.
The course is very intense and a high level of personal application is expected by everyone attending however the experience, musical knowledge gained, variety of night time activities and opportunity to make new friends provide an excellent opportunity for having fun and personal development.
The culmination of the week is the two public performances in Dingwall and Inverness where the Massed Pipes and Drums Beat Retreat and perform live in a Stage Concert setting.
