Band practice is on Wednesday evenings from 7.15-9.30pm. The first session is usually practice chanters and drum pads. The pipers start their session working together under the direction of the P/M and then break up into small groups to provide one-to-one tuition and practice for learners and less experienced players. The drummers have their own room for practising on sticks and practice pads.
After the tea break the whole band comes together on pipes and drums, rehearsing areas of the repertoire and practicing drill.
