JOIN COLCHESTER PIPES AND DRUMS

Pipers, you don’t start out on the bagpipes…you begin on a practice chanter. A practice chanter is used by beginning students and advanced players alike. Practice chanters are used to learn techniques for fingering and blowing. Pipe band members practice together using practice chanters, both for practicing old tunes and for learning the tempo and notes to new tunes. Once you have learn't the tune on the chanter then you play them on the bagpipes.
Highland drumming is significantly different than marching band or drum corps. Again, talk to us before making a purchase.   Highland Drumming, also called Scottish Drumming or Pipe Band Drumming is also taught by the Colchester Pipes and Drums. Come along to Copford and see what its all about
