Situation

The National Piping Centre is seeking funding for the publication of a tutor book for the Great Highland Bagpipe. The book would be to introduce learners to Piobaireachd (pronounced “peeb-roch”), the ancient classical music of the Highland Bagpipe. The book would teach all of the fundamental ornamentations and take a step by step approach to teaching tunes starting with the theme, and gradually introducing the subsequent variations. To accompany the book would b a DVD which would allow the learner to see video clips of master pipers demonstrating the required technique and with music files of the complete tunes. The book will also teach learners and help preserve for future generations the oral teaching tradition of the Highland Bagpipe which is called Canntaireachd (pronounced “can-ter-ach”), a highly developed system of vocables and syllables used to teach piping in Scotland predating the use of manuscript. We are looking for funding to cover the cost of publication of this tutor book. In addition to the creation of the book, a donation to this project multiplies its value to the National Piping Centre far into the future, as sales of the tutor book come straight to the bottom line of our charitable organisation.
