Still with the RSPBA, have you read the latest stats on downloads, Twitter followers, member bands? Just a taster, but copies of their free Structured Learning tutor books have been downloaded 11,000 times since they went on line in 2014 and that was up to the end of December. The Association has over 5,000 Twitter followers too and 36,000+ tunes have been downloaded from their prescribed tune list. Read more in the current edition of Pipe Band Magazine.
