The pipe band is currently looking to recruit new members regardless of their skill level. No matter what experience, we will help teach and develop you to play what ever instrument you choose.

If you wish to learn the bagpipes we have instruments available to use. Pipers initially start on the chanter which is used to practice and learn on, once learners achieve a certain level they will then start learning to transfer those skills onto the bagpipe.
