The College of Piping’s mission is to “inspire excellence in Celtic performing arts through quality educational programming”; therefore instructors are selected for their outstanding abilities and credentials both as educators and performers. They engage, inspire and respect students and build a positive environment where they can flourish. The College offers a variety of learning opportunities through weekly programs (group and private lessons), summer workshops, internships, customized courses and even the internet. All regularly scheduled programs are goal-driven, with the student and instructor as mutual partners in achieving excellence.
About THE COLLEGE OF PIPING AND CELTIC PERFORMING ARTS OF CANADA I
The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada was established in Summerside, Prince Edward Island in 1989 (2014 marks the 25th anniversary of The College!) as a registered Canadian charity and a non-profit organization. It has developed a world-class reputation as an international school of excellence in Highland bagpiping, Scottish-style snare drumming, Highland dancing, Island step dancing and it is the only year round school of its kind in North America. At The College of Piping we are committed to inspiring interest and excellence among youth in the performing arts, enhancing appreciation of culture and heritage, and encouraging active community engagement. Today, more than ever, young people need opportunities to discover and nurture their artistic talents with the support of positive adults and peers. The College of Piping provides that support.
