  • We were hoping for more than just a single display case. While this bagpipe was truly an important piece of history, we were interested to learn more about the pipes as a whole.  more »

  • Watched 2 great performances: 1 by the expert bag piper and drum player, and the other by the champion Highland dancer.
  • I am a snare drummer at the college, and the experience is really one of a kind. I now have two jobs now because of my commitment. They are both at the college. The college is currently teaming up with the National Piping Center in Glasgow, Scotland. This is also the only place that teaches bag piping, Scottish snare drumming, highland dancing and step dancing year round in north America. It is also a unique facility because in 2004, Doug and Debbie Hall really liked what the college had to offer. They didn't want to just donate twenty dollars, so they paid for all lessons for people under 18 who want to take snare or bagpipe lessons.
