Practice Set Loan Scheme
NWUP is very pleased to offer a practice set loan scheme.
This scheme provides an instrument and individual support to
people wishing to take up the Uilleann Pipes at what is often
the most important stage in their piping development. It also
helps us in our aims of promoting and encouraging the playing of
the Uilleann Pipes.
The loan sets will enable and encourage
people to try out this unique instrument in a low cost and fully
supported way. The period of the loan scheme would give a new
player time to explore the instrument before deciding to commit
financially to purchasing a set.
Good teaching and support with maintenance is difficult to find.
Volunteers from North West Uilleann Pipers will offer support
and teaching to a very high standard. Regular maintenance
workshops will also be readily at hand.
We have four practice sets and these will be offered to
people wishing have a serious try at this instrument. The sets
have been built by Dave Williams, Brian Howard, Andy Faden and Hevia.
If you would like to take part in this scheme please contact
email@example.com giving some information about your
interest in the Uilleann Pipes.
We would like to thank Voluntary Action Manchester, Community
Network for Manchester and the European Regional Development
fund for supporting this project. We would also like to thank
Brian Howard and Hevia for their support.
