Student Lesson Information

Lesson Information

As a beginner on the bagpipe or highland drums you start your experience with 1/2 hour weekly lessons. You start on the practice chanter or drum pad. Your lesson time is arranged for a time that works for you and the instructor.

Once you get on the pipes or drums and have a few tunes memorized you would be ready to join the pipe band!  At that point you would come to rehearsal at 6:30 on Wednesday evenings.
