Lessons/Practice

Free Bagpipe Lessons

Lessons are held at 7pm Tuesday and Wednesday nights.  You do not have to become a band member to take lessons.

We meet Tuesday nights downstairs in the choir room at Valley Community Presbyterian Church at the corner of SW Laurelwood Ave. and SW Brentwood St. in SW Portland -- almost Beaverton.

We meet Wednesday nights upstairs at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at 3405 SW Alice
Portland -- almost Tigard.

You will need a practice chanter (which can be purchased from the band for $50) and blank music paper (available on-line or from a music store).  A workbook and a CD of lessons will be provided.

Band Practice

Band practice starts at 7:30pm Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

Most practice sessions are open to all pipers and drummers - you do not have to be (or become) a band member.  The last couple of practices before a performance are for band members only.

It is a good idea to contact us before coming your first time in case we are bumped for a church function or are taking a week off.
