Have you ever wanted to play the bagpipes or drums? The Almonte Legion Pipe Band Branch 240 is offering free lessons to beginners of any age. Practice instruments, pipe chanters or drum pads and sticks, will be loaned to students in the 14-week introductory session beginning Monday September 13 at the Almonte Legion.
The Almonte Legion Pipe Band is a teaching band and encourages children, seniors, families, and everyone in between to come together to learn a new instrument. No musical experience is necessary. The 14-week session begins on September 13, and you can expect an hour-long group lesson from 6 to 7pm on the instrument of your choice – pipes, snare drum, tenor drum, or bass drum. All lessons will be held inside the Legion, with Covid-19 safety protocols in place. Registration is required – sign up soon to save your spot!
Experienced intermediate or advanced players are always welcome to join the band and practices are from 7-9pm on Monday nights at the Legion.
