Joining the Pipes and Drums

Musical Ride open house

Are you interested in joining the Pipe Band?

If you are an experienced piper or drummer and would like to join a prestigious and exciting band, please send an email to the Pipe Major at You should be comfortable playing common mass bands tunes at parade tempo and be willing to devote time required to learn more advanced scores. Unfortunately, the Band is not structured to support entry level musicians and dancers at this time.

The band practices weekly on Tuesday evening from 1900 hrs to 2100 hrs at the RCMP Headquarters complex at 73 Leiken Drive in Ottawa. Access to the facility is controlled so please contact the Pipe Major in advance.
