PLAY FOR SHEETS

The best and easiest way to get an honest, professional critique of your piping or drumming performance from an objective expert!

You know how your teacher wants you to play it, you know how you want to play it, but how does your performance come across when the pressure is on and you are trying to set yourself apart from the competition? Everyone wants to ask the judge a few questions after a competition, perhaps this is just not the done thing. But at "PLAY FOR SHEETS" whether it's Piobaireachd, Marches, Strathspeys, Reels or Fanfares, there is nothing to lose and so much to gain!
