“You don’t learn to play the Great Highland pipes on a bagpipe,” said Brian Wells, who will instruct the beginning bagpipe class, “We learn to play on a small instrument known as a practice chanter.” Prospective drummers use practice pads and drum sticks to learn their craft.

“Loaner” practice chanters” may be provided free of charge (depending on availability). These are much quieter than a bagpipe! Committed students are encourage to purchase a practice chanter of their own.

Instruction is designed to introduce basic rudiments and skills needed to play the bagpipe or drum. Prior musical experience or the ability to read music is not a prerequisite. There will be a nominal fee to cover the costs of materials, as well as, sticks and pads for drummers.
