Rothesay & District Pipe Band - tuition for young people

We are a registered charity that provides quality low cost tuition for local young people to learn the bagpipes and drums. At present we have over 70 pupils receiving lessons each week, in addition to many adult members. We would like to use funds to offer more young people the opportunity to join our programme and to help with the costs of coach hire to attend Championships on the mainland.


Pipe bands are much more than a musical pastime - they promote a wide range of life and employability skills and attributes that include teamwork, commitment, perseverance, goal oriented behaviours, self-esteem and confidence, individual and shared achievement, a sense of dress and discipline, social skills and camaraderie. Our young players have travelled all over Scotland and beyond to attend competitions! A few years ago we visited our twin town, Sulzbach in Germany.
