Reeding and Voicing Workshop with Bill Haneman
Monday 24th August until Wednesday 26th August (three days), 9.30am – 4.30pm each day at Na Píobairí Uilleann’s PipeCraft Training Centre, Unit 44 Port Tunnel Business Park, Clonshaugh.
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 students be experienced and capable in the physical manufacture of chanters. Students who wish to voice their own chanters during this class should be prepared to bring a partially completed chanter to class, using a design agreed upon with the instructor in advance.
The course costs €120 per participant and places are strictly limited. To register your interest or for more information please contact email@example.com or call +353 1 8730093.
