Pipe Bands Victoria is pleased to announce that the two female tutors that will accompany the Victorian Youth Pipe Band to Belfast have been selected and accepted their appointments.
We welcome Merran Moir from Warrnambool and Sara Hamza from Victoria Scottish to assist Vice Principals Scott Nicolson and Andrew Womersley with tutoring and mentoring the youth band. Merran and Sara are both professional teachers and have many years experience in their respective discipline of piping and mid-section drumming.
A practice for the Youth Band is scheduled for January 2019 in Maryborough where the band will also engage in a public performance. The young people who have joined the Youth Band come from a number of our bands from across Victoria. There are still some piping vacancies and expressions of interest from young members are always welcome.
