Established in 1946, the Band is one of the longest active pipe bands in Tasmania. We actively encourage new members with a formalised process for induction and training, and offer free structured tuition for pipes and drums. The Band is active in community-based events throughout the year, including ANZAC Day marches, Hobart Christmas pageant, monthly performances at Salamanca Markets, and regional fairs. In addition, the Band can provide solo pipers or mini-bands to add something special to any event whether weddings, funerals, corporate events, parties...

We offer a free tuition program and encourage new members in both pipes and drums. If you are a passionate and dedicated musician, or enthusiastic and committed learner, then we'd love to hear from you.

The musical contribution of all band members is valued.

The band is primarily a teaching and development pipe band where members can learn to play pipes and drums to the level of their individual expectations, in line with the curriculum and standards as determined from time to time by the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association in conjunction with the Scottish Qualifications Authority or an Australian equivalent. As a teaching and learning pipe band, the musical tuition program puts the tuition needs of individual band members first and respects their contribution to the band’s success.
