Dear BCPA Members.

As previously announced, due to the COVID-19 virus situation, the BCPA Annual Gathering for 2020 has been cancelled.

Similarly, on March 20, the Victoria Highland Games announced they are rescheduling their 2020 Games to a date in late summer but it will not include solo piping, drumming, or pipe band competitions.

Due to these cancellations and restricted movements imposed by governments and health authorities, members of our piping and drumming community are not able to participate in and enjoy the aspects of pipe band practices, competitions, highland games, and other social elements of piping and drumming.

So in response to recommendations of the March 14 & 15 online meetings of pipe band leaders in our community, BCPA is working on putting together some educational videos for viewing on BCPA's YouTube channel ( )

Our plan is to launch these educational videos on what would have been the Saturday of the Annual Gathering, April 11.

We'd like to know what you would like to learn about piping, drumming, pipe bands, competitions and highland games from BCPA Adjudicators, many who are active teachers in our Association and Solo Grading subcommittee members, and prominent piping and drumming teachers in our region.

Please complete the following survey by Wednesday March 25 so that content to address your requested topics can be produced and posted April 11.

Any topics received after March 25 will still get actioned but may not have educational videos produced and posted until after April 11.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you.

BCPA Music Committee - Education & Training Subcommittee
