Our organization currently consists of two competition bands, a parade and performance band, and a well-established bagpipe and drumming school.
Our grade two band, our top-level band, is lead by Pipe Major Scott Long. The goal of the grade two band is to refine skills and develop players as a group to compete and perform at a higher standard while playing great music and having fun.
In our grade four band, players continue to learn the basic skills of their instruments, and develop an understanding of pipe band structure, drill and performance.
