There are two variations of the reed workshop for uilleann pipers. There's a 3 day class and a 1 day class (scroll down). The three day class is the only workshop of its kind in North America.
We will also offer separate instruction on reeds for flat pitch pipes for both the three day and one day classes.
Space is limited to 12 for the 3 day class on concert pitch reeds and 5 for the flat pitch reeds.
Three Day Workshop:
begins on Thursday and runs through Saturday.
Thursday and Friday from 10AM to 5PM. Location 7240 Anna, Maplewood, MO
Saturday from 9:30 to 4. Location Nerinx Hall H.S. 530 East Lockwood, Webster Groves, MO
Tools and cane will be available but we strongly urge you to bring your own if you have them.
Class size is limited - if you are interested please register as soon as possible and/or contact me by email ( mmullins "at sign" tionol dot org).
Many students who've done the three day class in the past have finished their reed by Friday evening and gone onto a music class on Saturday. There's no additional cost for this.
The fee for the reeds class will be $300 and will include admission to the concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.
The instructor also teaches reeds at the Willie Clancy Summer School, the only other multi-day reed workshop.
One Day Workshop:
Saturday from 9:30 to 4. Location Nerinx Hall H.S.
