Academy expanded to include Pipes and Drums
The St Paul’s Academy of Music at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School is poised to launch an exciting new opportunity with the formation of the St Paul’s Academy of Music Pipes and Drums.
The Pipes and Drums program will provide a platform for the delivery of specialised training in bagpipes and drums to interested students at both the Traralgon and Warragul Campuses of the school.
St Paul’s welcomes Richard Harris as part of this new initiative. Richard has over 40 years’ experience as a piper and pipe major, both nationally and internationally. He has competed at Grade 1 championship level, received traditional pipes tuition in Scotland, performed at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and worked with André Rieu and John Farnham. Richard’s most recent position was as Pipe Major of the Queanbeyan City Pipes and Drums. He is currently a member of the Morwell Caledonian Pipe Band and the Warragul RSL Pipe Band Chapter’s Lead Piper and Tutor.
Pipes and Drums are an exciting addition to the St Paul’s Academy of Music which currently offers students a dedicated class-based focus for the development of their chamber, choral and orchestral skills. Auditions for the 2023 St Paul’s Academy of Music will open later this year, with new and existing students encouraged to apply.
