Default Piping tuition in Edinburgh (august)

Hi, I'm visiting the city for a month and would like to take piping classes. I already play the flute and uilleann pipes and I'm not a complete novice with GHB. Any tips? Thanks!!

If you don't mind a commute to Glasgow, the National Piping Centre offers tuition for all levels and the teachers there are great. (I'm not familiar with piping tuition in Edinburgh.)

Not necessarily instruction, but a valuable learning experience none the less...
The Piobaireachd Society is hosting a showcase of piobaireachd on August 11 in the old part of Edinburgh
I hope to go, details are on their website.
I'd also look up the Eagle Pipers, always a fun time.

I'd second the suggestion to drop the Eagle Pipers a line and ask who they'd suggest - August is a busy time for good pipers so some of the people I'd normally suggest might be hard to get hold of. If you don't get any results from that drop me a PM and I'll give you a few people to get in touch with.

It's a short train ride to Glasgow and the National piping centre!
