The Captain's Memorization Techniques with Ken Eller
September 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Few people in North American pipe band history are likely to have had to memorize quite as many tunes as Ken Eller. Having played in top pipe bands for over 40 years, Ken has mastered the process of memorization, and will now share his insights with us!
Ken Eller, also known as "The Captain", has had a 40-year piping career at the Grade 1 level I has been 15 times a winner of the North American Pipe Band Championships with two bands: the 78th Fraser Highlanders and the Clan MacFarlane Pipe Band. He is now retired from active competition and has expanded his involvement in instruction. It is his intent to be of service not only to students who participate in his workshops but also to help the long-distance piper needing special assistance.
The Captain has been a member of the Piper's and Pipe Band Society of Ontario (PPBSO) since 1962 and is also a member of the Eastern US Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA). In 1984/85 he was admitted to the panel of Adjudicators for both of these organizations. In 2005, he qualified for the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA) adjudication panel and has been judging regularly in Scotland and Ireland since.
