The Western Academy of Pipe Music has  deep roots in Western Canada. Please see About WAPM . We are constantly evolving—who knows where this will lead?

While WAPM has hosted summer schools in the past, we are currently enjoying success at organizing small piping and drumming workshops throughout the year. These  single day or weekend workshops allow an intense, energetic, productive experience that students really enjoy.

In additional, WAPM launched a piobaireachd club on Vancouver Island that meets periodically. This is an excellent opportunity for players of all levels to perform for a really appreciative audience. Piobaireachd fans can indulge their senses, while invariably learning a thing or two.

Jim Barrie is busily working on several recording projects in his Ceol Mor Studio, and has recently added to his state-of-the-art equipment. He has CDs and a book of his own compositions for purchase.

We look forward to hearing from you! wapm@shaw.ca
