2013 Drumming Masterclass

Cowal Highland Gathering is delighted to announce that it is to hold two masterclasses with Stephen Creighton, the lead drummer with the award winning St. Laurence O’Toole Grade 1 Pipe Band.

Stephen has offered to host two masterclass workshops at this year’s event on Friday 30th August. Stephen, from Dublin, has won many solo drumming awards over the years and the St. Laurence O’Toole Pipe Band features regularly in the Grade One top six prize list at the major pipe band championships.
The morning workshop (1100hrs - 1230hrs) will be open to any young person (of school age) who would like to come and try side (snare) drumming and who have no previous experience. All equipment will be supplied by Stephen and there will be no costs associated with attending the class.

The afternoon session (1400hrs - 1530hrs) is open to young drummers who have had some experience and wish to enhance their current skills and learn new skills from one of the world’s top drummers.

Sessions are limited to 20 attendees and places will be allocated on a strictly first come first served basis.

Application forms are available from the Cowal Highland Gathering Office in Hillfoot Street, Dunoon, by e-mail from info@cowalgathering.com or by calling 01369 703206.
