In this time of sheltering and not being able to gather, there are some innovative efforts going on in the piping and drumming world to provide online contests and events, all in the spirit of improving our playing and having some fun!

Along these lines, WUSPBA, on a trial basis, is offering its members a unique opportunity to have a review and feedback session with judges, but without the constraints of a competition. Three WUSPBA A-Panel piping judges and two A-Panel drumming judges are making themselves available for you to play and receive immediate comments on your performance. The five judges are currently on the WUSPBA Music Board and Education Council, which is why they were asked to volunteer for this trial run. Each judge has agreed to provide up to three hours of consultation time, in 15-minute time slots.

NOTE: For now, please only sign up for ONE time slot. If there open slots available after the registration deadline (Friday), you may sign up for additional times.
