It has been an amazing journey over these 5+ years watching the band grow and answer the call to fulfill our mission to public safety. Wake & District has been fortunate to have likeminded people seek us out and express interest in becoming a part of the good deeds and good times we share. As we move towards 2012…3 sides drummers, 1 tenor and 6 pipers will be making the transition from student to member – swelling our membership to almost 50.

Wake & District is always open to new membership. Most incoming members are complete beginning students interested in learning the great Highland bagpipes, Scottish snare drum, flourishing and rhythm tenor drum, or bass drum.

The band recognizes the importance for young and old alike to be grounded properly in the basic technique and musicality seen with these unique instruments.

Wake & District also welcomes individuals who already play pipes or drums and are interested in joining a success-driven group of like-minded musicians. While the directive staff does keep their eyes out for talented players, they cannot read minds. If you wish to become a part of our group – do not hesitate to ask. At the earliest convenience, a meeting can be arranged to assess your needs as a player and your future within our ranks.
