Learn@Live!, Piping Live!'s educational strand of events returns online for 2021! This fantastic series of events sees workshops across 4 days of the festival covering a huge range of topics.
Due to unforseen circumstances, Roddy MacLeod won't be able to deliver this workshop. We are delighted to say that Callum Beaumont, the youngest ever (and 4 time) Clasp winner at the Northern Meetings, will present this workshop. Callum is a multiple Piobaireachd prize winner at the highest level and he will discuss this artform and what you need to know to improve your playing>
The performance of a Piobaireachd is a like a musical journey. Like any journey well travelled preparation is key, a route map to ensure none of the highlights are missed is essential as is moving at the right pace. Time should be taken for enjoyment, reflection and movement. A well played Piobaireachd like a great journey should allow the listener to share in a memorable experience. This workshop explores the fundamentals of building a musical journey from departure to destination - Ground to A Mach!
