Otago Pipers Club Announces New Approach to Junior Piobaireachd Competitions

November 5, 2007

The Otago Pipers Club, in conjunction with Piping & Dancing Assn has introduced three levels of junior piobaireachd performance for use at it’s junior competitions.

Level 1 Piobaireachd. The ground of any piobaireachd.

Level 2 Piobaireachd. The ground and 2 variations of any piobaireachd. The choice of variations is up to the competitor and their tutor.

Level 3 Piobaireachd. A complete tune.

The competitor enters a level suitable to them. It is not predetermined by their ‘grading’. Because of that the piobaireachd placing is not included in ‘most points’ determinations.
