Drumming syllabi review
Principal Drumming Dean Hall has advised that the drumming division of the Australian Pipe Band College will this year be conducting a periodical review of the syllabi.
A review panel consisting of VPs and other state panel members shall review the four major levels of the course in an effort to address any opportunities for relevant improvements and to ensure that Australia’s internationally-recognised college syllabi are up to date with global trend.
The recently-appointed Principal Ensemble Nat Russell is also reviewing all aspects of the ensemble syllabus.
College music principals are currently reviewing the grading criteria prior to commencing the scheduled assessment of band gradings following the 2018 Australian Pipe Band Championships to be held in Brisbane in April.
The 2018 grading review criteria will be released ahead of the review.
