Interested in Joining?

If interested in joining BCFPD Pipes & Drums, we welcome your inquiries. The band always needs pipers and drummers with experience who can join the band after demonstrating basic mastery of band repertoire. Also, instruction is available for beginning pipers and drummers (side, tenor, and bass) who are interested in band membership after learning the core repertoire. Membership requires availability on Tuesday evenings for practice and some Saturdays during the active season.

A beginning bagpiper typically spends 6-9 months learning technique and tunes on a practice chanter before moving onto the Great Highland Bagpipe. As you progress, we will work with you to learn our repertoire and to prepare you for band membership. Start-up costs are approximately $80 for a practice chanter and lesson book. Purchasing a Great Highland Bagpipe will cost approximately $1200. The band has one loaner set for use by beginners while assessing permanent interest. Learning time for Scottish drumming is much shorter, depending on prior experience and drumming skills. Snare drummers need to provide their own drumsticks. Upon joining the band, most the required uniform is provided with small pieces purchased by individual members.
