Voicing and Tuning Workshop with Bill Haneman

*This course will now take place virtually – details below*

Participants will receive exclusive prerecorded video content filmed specifically for this course in advance of the workshop (Saturday 22nd August). They will also receive any supplementary material the course tutor deems to be beneficial. An initial Zoom session will take place on Monday 24th August at 2PM IST with all participants and course tutor. The tutor will take participants through the provided content and answer any specific inquiries. Participants will then have an opportunity to go away and work on their own chanters. A follow-up Zoom session will take place on Wednesday 26th August at 2PM IST so that participants can discuss their progress with the tutor and ask any questions they might have.  

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 as part of this workshop should be prepared with a partially completed chanter.

This virtual course costs €50 per participant and places are strictly limited. To register your interest or for more information please contact info@pipers.ie or call +353 1 8730093.
