The Midwest Pipe Band Association

UPDATE PENDING

The MWPBA Music Board creates, facilitates and administers consistent application of competitor grading levels not only within the MWPBA, but, more importantly, across a much broader scale of associations and alliances. This is intended to have all competitors entered at an appropriate level for the overall good of the association and its membership.

All band and solo competitors wishing to change grade must petition the MWPBA Music Board for consideration.  Regrade forms are available under the forms section of the website.

This page will be periodically updated as re-grades are approved by the Music Board.

The following regrades have been approved by the MWPBA Music Board for season 2018.  Congratulations to all those upgraded!
