Tuning & Voicing Course with Bill Haneman

March 4 @ 10:00 am - March 5 @ 4:00 pm


Two day course on tuning and voicing chanters to take place in Na Píobairí Uilleann’s HQ, 15 Henrietta Street, Dublin 1, Saturday 4th March – Sunday 5th March, two days inclusive, 10am-4pm.

The course will cover the concepts and processes of taking a chanter from the “as drilled” state to a finished instrument, including chamfering, undercutting, scalloping, rushing, and small modifications to the bore and tonehole diameters. Examples of voiced and unvoiced chanters in concert pitch and flat pitches will be demonstrated.  The decision making processes leading to these modifications will be discussed. In order to make the most of this course, it is a prerequisite that participants be experienced and capable in the physical manufacture of chanters. Participants will receive exclusive pre-recorded video content in advance of attending. They will also receive any supplementary material the course tutor deems to be beneficial. Participants who wish to voice their own chanters as part of this workshop should be prepared with a partially completed chanter and pass on details of their chanter in advance.

Cost for the course is €80 for members / €110 for non-members. (Membership can be purchased on the Na Píobairí Uilleann website).

Places are limited. Please contact Na Píobairí Uilleann by email to info@pipers.ie or by calling +353-1-8730093 for more information and to sign-up.

All participants will be required to adhere to all health and safety protocols in place.
