Piping and drumming tuition takes place in Preston Lodge High School and in feeder primary schools.
Pupils may start to learn in Primary 4 or above, depending on availability of spaces with the piping and drumming tutors.
All pupils who receive primary school tuition will continue to receive tuition at Preston Lodge High School.
