After six years of service that included helping to start the project itself, Paul Warren has resigned as Director of The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland, a band organized by the National Piping Centre in Glasgow. Warren cited personal reasons for his departure.

The organization is actively searching for a new Director, a full-time post that pays as much as £22,500 annually.

According to National Piping Centre Director Roddy MacLeod, the NYPB Director is responsible for the overall operations of the band – which is funded jointly by the Scottish Arts Council Youth Music Initiative and the National Piping Centre – including:

  • Planning courses and managing training events to recruit and train both new and existing members

  • Coordination of rehearsals and concerts

  • Maintaining financial planning and accountability

  • Overseeing marketing and PR

  • Bringing the band’s performance standard to the highest possible quality

  • Working with local authorities, schools, music coordinators, piping and drumming teachers, pipe bands and cultural coordinators across Scotland  

MacLeod said that applicants should be “highly-motivated individuals with first-class communication skills, an excellent track record in teaching and/or performing in piping, good IT skills and knowledge of financial planning/accountability.”

He said that interested pipers should forward their resume to amclaren@thepipingcentre.co.uk by November 28, 2008.

TIP OF THE DAY
When playing a three-note run, accent the third note. The run is a fancy way of playing the last note. The third note is the one that gets the attention and the weight.
