Pupils start to learn on a practice chanter or using drum pads and sticks.
Some pupils buy their own set of bagpipes, but they can also can be borrowed. Snare, tenor and bass drummers all use the pipe band drums.
While most families would be expected to make the initial investment in purchasing a new practice chanter or drum sticks and drum pad, we do have a stock of used instruments which can be borrowed or bought at a discounted price if financial constraints are an issue.
