Join the Band
Whether you play the pipes or drums, or not, we welcome you to be a part of the Father of Waters Pipes and Drums. Beginners who are just learning their instruments or experienced players have a place with us. Even if you don't play and you simply want to be a part of the action as an associate member who is willing to assist us in our pursuits, we welcome you.
Pipers and drummers in training can be voted in as members at large until such time in which they are ready to go before the Pipe Major or Drum Major and the band to be voted into their respective ranks as pipers or drummers. But rank isn't everything. Even members in training are given the opportunity to perform or participate as fully as possible with us.
If you just want to visit for awhile or take some lessons and attend some events before you decide whether or not to join our ranks, that's just fine with us. We are glad to have visitors and students who just want to check out Scottish music.
We do not collect any dues from members, so most expenses are incurred by the individual members of the band. Non-Scots who seek membership are adopted and given the right to join our ranks - usually by unanimous vote.
