If you are interesting in joining the band and learning to play what does it involve......
In summary we meet once or twice a week in Yellow Walls. Classes are held to teach people to play the Bagpipes and Snare Drums. The aim is to have a band that will play at competitions around the country and abroad during the Summer months, and to support other local events or charity events in the area too. At the same time the Band hopes to build a family friendly social aspect.
New joiners are welcome. The instruments are not particularly hard to play, but lots of practice and determination is needed to learn how to play, read music, learn scores and parade as one group. Beginners will need to supply their drum sticks and practice pads or practice pipe chanters to start. We can advise on that.
Fund raising and sponsorship is important and some subs are needed to cover the cost of running the band and for the purchasing equipment. Generally children 10+ years to adults can learn, if you have an aptitude for this, you will know very quickly. Young people generally can pick up the past time quickly and enjoy the music, competition and travel aspects
For more details on playing or just supporting the Band just email, Thanks
