In May 2018 the National Piping Centre incorporated the College of Piping.
For 2019 there is a NEW Cover for the famous “Green Tutor”, the College of Piping Tutor 1. This exciting modern look continues the longevity of the excellent information contained within.
This is the perfect bagpipe tutor book, providing bagpipe lessons for beginners onwards. Bagpipers and bagpipe teachers refer to this bagpipe tutor book as “the Green Book”
First produced in 1952, this book by the College of Piping’s then Joint Principals Seumas MacNeill and Thomas Pearston, is by far the biggest selling book on learning to play the bagpipe ever issued, selling to date around 500,000 copies worldwide.
This is the book that has guided the progression of thousands of learners from the basic techniques to successfully mastering the great highland bagpipe.
In this latest edition (Summer 2017), the book’s original integrity has been maintained – a testament to the authors’ clarity, coherence, and ‘connection’ with the learner – whilst taking cognisance of current PDQB guidelines.
Price does not include postage and packing.
There are accompanying videos to go along with the chapters in this book. They can be found on The National Piping Centre website here
Formerly the College of Piping Tutor Book 3
The College’s Tutor 3 is the natural progression from the world-beating Tutor 1, the Green Tutor. Tutor Book 3 provides an introduction to the playing of competition marches, strathspeys, reels, hornpipes and jigs.
There are also tunes for dancing and lessons on standard pieces such as Scotland the Brave and Flowers of the Forest.
As with Tutor 1, Tutor 3 has all the tunes and theory necessary to pass the light music sections of the Pipe and Drumming Qualifications Board Levels 1 – 4 examinations.
