New Members FAQs

I can play, but I’m out of practice. Can I still join?

Sure can. We’ll help you get back up to speed.

Can I bring my own instruments?

Absolutely. Most pipers have their own pipes, but most drummers use the Band’s instruments.

I don’t have an instrument. Will the Band supply me with one?

The band has its own instruments and will gladly issue them to active player-members.

Do I have to compete?

Band members are not compelled to take part in competitions. The choice is yours.

What other expenses might I incur?

Being a member of the Band needn’t cost you a fortune. If you wish to attend piping schools and competitions, there will be costs involved, but the Band attempts to subsidize them as far as practicable. Participation in away events is never compulsory.
