Frequently Asked Questions
What materials do I need to buy? Where can I buy them?
How long will it take me to learn to play the bagpipe?
A dedicated student might spend 6 months to a year learning basic fingerwork and tunes on the practice chanter. Once they master the practice chanter, the student may spend an additional year learning how to setup, maintain, wrestle with, and finally... play the bagpipe.
How do I get started with lessons?

This is an online community for bagpipe instruction. They provide articles, video instruction and even live online classes for members. A great resource for pipers of all levels!
What's it like being part of the band?
The Williamsburg Pipes and Drums are a non-competition band. We play for local events and charities around Williamsburg, Virginia. As an individual piper, you may have the opportunity to play additional events as well.
