The Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board (PDQB) is a unified qualifications structure for playing, teaching, examining, and adjudicating the Great Highland Bagpipe and Pipe Band Drumming. PDQB is validated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and is developed jointly by The Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming, The Tri Service Cadet Centre, The National Piping Centre, The Piobaireachd Society and The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA). Both Theory and Performance (practical) examinations certificates can be earned in Scottish Bagpipes and Scottish Pipe Band Drumming.
Tyler Bridge, Pipe Major of the Guelph Pipe Band and holder of a Bachelor of Arts Degree with honours in Music, will review the material and cover practice examinations for both NPA Scottish Bagpipe Theory and Scottish Pipe Band Drumming Theory SCQF Level 3 and Level 4.
