Welcome to the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association, Pipe Band College Learning pages.

We have made a few adjustments recently by adding a new layout and content which you can find within the Learning Menu above.

You can download our free Structured Learning Manuals and make use of Elementary Instructional Piping Videos recorded by Robert Wallace from Piping Press.

Here you will have access to a range of information from our PDQB (Piping & Drumming Qualifications Board), CPBM (Certificate of Pipe Band Musicianship) Parts 1 and 2 Certificated Processes as well as our Outreach & Summer School learning initiatives.

You can read about the College and it's members with input and news from all our local branches and their representatives.

You can also find us on Facebook, via the RSPBA Pipe Band College Page.

We are continually adding content right now so please continue to check both the Website and Facebook page for up to date news and information.

Paul M Brown
College Principal.
