Adjudicators & Stewards

BCPA Adjudicators and Stewards


BCPA maintains a list of pipers and drummers who have been approved as adjudicators by the Music committee’s Adjudication subcommittee based on successful competitive achievements and adjudication apprenticeship.

Adjudicators are approved for particular disciplines (e.g. piping, drumming, drum majoring) and appropriate specialties within those disciplines (e.g. for piping: light music, piobaireachd, band piping, ensemble; for drumming: snare & tenor, band drumming, ensemble).

Specialties are approved for grade level ranges:

“A” = Certified for all grades
“B” = For solo event classifications means certified for Grade 1 and lower. For band event classifications means certified for Grade 3 and lower

The following list contains the BCPA approved active adjudicators who are current BCPA Active or Life members:
