Welcome to the North American Academy of Piping and Drumming!

The piping and drumming school was started by the late John McFayden, of Glasgow, Scotland, and Pipe Major Sandy Jones. The school's professional instructors conduct one-week classroom instruction on all aspects of piping and drumming.

We are celebrating 50 years of the North American Academy of Piping and Drumming with a reunion ceilidh on July 4, 2020 in the Apple Barn! It will be a great time to catch up with alumni old and new and celebrate good music and good times! We will have music, refreshments and beverages, including beer and wine, but you can also BYOB. Lodging is available at the conference center - $100 for the weekend per person. Please contact the Conference Center directly for reservations at (828) 963-4453. We hope you can join us! We cherish our memories over the years with you and all of our past instructors. Who has the oldest t-shirt?

Room, board and tuition are included at a very reasonable price. Resident and Day Student programs available.

Come join us in 2020 as we celebrate our 50th year!
