Education. Membership provides entry to seasonal workshops like those recently presented, “More Ceol Mor”, “Evolution of the 2/4 March”, “Music Memorization Tips” and 2021's "Up Yer Game" twelve-session learning seminar series for pipers and drummers!
Community. PPBSO branches across Ontario are active - especially outside of the busy summer season - and offer members opportunities to network socially and professionally within a collegial, like-minded group of music lovers. The summer games circuit, too, provides a dynamic competitive forum for members to hone their skills and have them tested across peer groups in exciting musical events. Membership ensures an instant connection with our association partners in the global piping and drumming community.
Discounts. Members receive a 20% discount off all seasonal learning programs, like the Summer Blast! summer school (a $70 saving for the July 2021 school).
An opportunity to help preserve and influence a tradition. Membership offers a gateway to volunteer and make a positive (and satisfying) difference through fund-raising, events management and governance that are all integral to the health and vitality of the long, grand tradition of the music of bagpipes and drums.
