Thanks for Another Great SOUND ADVICE!



Thanks to our 2020 Instructors and students for a great summer camp via Zoom. We had a large number of students from many parts of North America, including pipers, drummers, Highland dance, fiddlers, guitar and bodhran players, smallpipers and whistle players!

It was a great mix of people and a lot of fun and learning took place, especially given the "learning at a distance" medium.

This was the 17th year of the school since it was re-formatted in 2004.
