Winchester Piping Summer School 2022

Hosted by City of Winchester Pipes & Drums

Reknowned pipers Roddy MacLeod and Brian Donaldson will be teaching at our 1-week summer school at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia, July 24-29. This school will be limited to 24 students. The organization of the school will be similar to our previous schools with 4 instructional periods per day and mini-concerts at noon by Roddy and Brian. With limited enrollment Roddy and Brian will be able to provide much more personalized instruction to strengthen your piping skills.


Fees: Tuition for the school is $600 USD, with at least a $100 deposit due with registration to secure your spot (though you may pay in full if you choose). Only 24 students will be admitted, but we will accept registrations beyond that to account for withdrawals. Payment will not be taken for those wait-listed, but registration info should still be provided to secure your spot on the wait-list.

Lodging: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hampton Inn, University/Mall Area 640 East Jubal Early Drive Winchester VA 22601 (540-667-8011), at the rate of $100.17 per night. Students will be responsible for making their own accommodation reservation using the confirmation #97985326. Reservations must be made by June 30.

Meals: We do not plan to offer a meal plan but the University cafeteria will be available for meals on a pay as you go basis. The Brandt Student Union also has dining facilities with a fast-food type menu. In addition to these, there are several restaurants within walking distance of the University.

Deadlines: Registrations and full tuition payments must be received no later than June 30, 2022.
