Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board Examinations

Similar in concept to the more familiar Royal Conservatory Examinations, the Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board Examinations is a certification program. It consists of a series of examinations in the playing, history, maintenance and theory of the Highland bagpipe, as well as the snare, bass and tenor drum.

The school’s current head instructor is a designated examiner for the Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board, which incorporates the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Society and the Institute of Piping certification programs.  CLICK FOR DETAILS
