How to Join The Band

No matter if you are a novice or an experienced player, if you’re interested in learning piping or drumming in a relaxed military setting, the band would love to see you!

Join us at the PWOR Armories any Monday evening. The normal routine of the Regiment typically shuts down for the summer for courses and other taskings, but the band carries on straight through to keep the skills sharp and to learn and to practice new tunes. Practice chanters and drum sticks and pads are provided by the band on a temporary loan basis; there are no fees involved. Band members enjoy:

  • Free bagpipe instruction
  • Free drum instruction
  • Free instrument use
  • Free uniform issue


If you would like to see what we do or to listen to a few tunes, drop by the Armouries at:

100 Montreal St., downtown Kingston.

See you there!


*** The PWOR Foundation Pipes and Drums is opening its doors for new pipers and drummers. We are looking to recruit as many experienced players as possible, but we will also accept beginners for our program as well. To join the band, contact Kevin Offord on our contacts page. We would love to see as many new faces as possible for the summer/fall season.
