A traditional pipe band consists of two corps and only uses four instruments. The pipe corps play bagpipes and produce the melody for the ensemble. The drum corps, which consists of a bass , tenor and snare drums provide the “light and shade” for the band performance.
Instruction will be provided free of charge though learners of each instrument will be required to purchase their own practice instruments and tuition materials. A bit of advice, there are many cheap items on eBay so it’s very easy to waste money on something that will be of no use to you at all. You do not need anything at all to attend your first night at the rehearsal hall other than an inquisitive mind.
