Join the band

If you'd like to learn to play the pipes or drums with us, we can help you out. We offer free lessons to anyone who joins the band, with the option of private lessons as well.

To learn piping, you'll need to get a practice chanter. Don't buy pipes yet! It takes time, generally between 6 months and two years before you'll be ready for the full set of pipes.

Drumming students will need a practice pad and a set of highland sticks.

Practice chanters can be obtained from Henderson, Midwest Bagpipe Supply, The Piper's Hut and through us; if you have questions about what to buy, please don't hesitate to contact us - we'll be glad to answer any questions. Practice pads are available from any local music store, and highland sticks can be purchased from Sam Ash.
