The summer school curriculum consists of the traditional format of marches, strathspeys, reels and other time signatures. Classes are grouped by ability using criteria such as playing technique,
reading music, ability to play musically. This applies to both the piping and drumming classes.
The school will continue to offer a dedicated piobaireachd course for 2019 summer school session.
Enrollees must be able to play a ground and first variation (grade 4 level).
Elective offerings will continue to include a piobaireachd extracirricular class.

The California Summer School of Piping and Drumming offers intensive instruction by professional instructors in each discipline. The school is open to all ages and to all levels of skill from beginners to competition players. Each student is placed in a class of 6-8 students within their level of experience and skill level. Optional classes are offered in the afternoon, such as pipe band techniques, bagpipe and reed maintenance, and piobaireachd.
Most evenings we will have a lecture by one of the instructors followed by a recital by another instructor.
