Learn to Play

Interested in learning the pipes or drums, we can teach you!

Can’t read music? No problem, we can teach you that too!

For the cost of membership and a practice chanter, we will provide you with tuition.

When you are ready and playing a few tunes, we will then lend you a set of pipes to get started.

Simply contact us or come to a practice session for 2 free no obligation lessons and see if you like it.
