You do NOT need to be Scottish to love bagpipes!
Scottish Piping and Drumming is a unique and culturally rich musical style performed around the world. The Conservatory of Performing Arts Pipe and Drum Programs include the Conservatory Pipe Band, beginner Scottish bagpipes and drums, and various courses for adults.
In our Conservatory Pipe Band, students learn both solo and band skills, while working as a team to improve the band. Youth instruction in bagpipes and snare and tenor/bass drums is based on Scotland’s Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board guidelines and on the long experience of the teaching staff in producing excellent musicians.
Our programs would not be possible without the generous support of the City of Regina Pipe Band and the Saskatchewan Pipe Band Association. In the summer, the Saskatchewan Pipe Band Association runs a summer school called Sound Advice, for both new and experienced students interested in Scottish Piping and Drumming.
If you are an adult who is new to bagpipes, we have one-on-one lessons available in our Music – Private Lessons. All youth age 8 and older are recommended to join our Conservatory Pipe Band program to start in beginner pipes or drums.
