The Sons of Scotland Pipe Band of Ottawa
If you are interested in joining the Sons of Scotland as a piper or drummer, drop us a line. Our history dates back to 1896, but the mandate stays the same - provide free instruction to those who wish to learn, and then go into the community to present that music. We have opportunities for solo pipers too, and do a lot of fun, creative work.
We welcome players to get in touch about lessons, and come out when they are ready to join our classes. We don't currently have beginner piping instruction, so if you're looking for lessons to get started in piping or to continue your piping education, you can email the Pipe Major, Bethany Bisaillion at email@example.com for information on private tuition and when you can join the band at practice.
Monday nights from 7 to 9 pm we are offering free instruction in tenor, bass and snare drumming with our fantastic lead drummer, Dave Nuttall. Our tenor and bass corps are stacked with talented and helpful players who are always ready to lend a hand and help a new player. Like to travel? We do that too!
Email PM Bethany Bisaillion at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to come out, what you need, and what to expect. People of all ages and all levels of play are welcome - no experience needed, but enthusiasm required!
To book the band, send an email to Band Manager Donald MacDonald at Donald@sospb.com
