Learning to Play
We run a learning programme on Tuesday evenings at the Band Hall from 6.00pm. Here we introduce learners to bagpipes and drumming so that they will get involved in the community, join a fantastic and fun social atmosphere and above all learn to play some wonderful music. The programme has been designed to develop pipers and drummers naturally and progressively so that learners successfully integrate into the band and one day travel up and down the country participating in many varied events
The Red Hackle Pipe Band has a commitment to provide high quality tutors, has proven training resources and has a fun and positive learning environment. Our expectation from learners is that they will make a commitment to complete the necessary practice between sessions as directed by their tutor. This will ensure suitable progress is maintained and the goal of playing in the band is achieved.
Tuition is generally group based and is run by highly experienced tutors. Please contact us for more information on the costs and lessons here.
Learners (and parents!) are invited to stay after their lessons to hear the full band practice and get involved with the band as much as they can.
