Please donate your old set of pipes today through the Bagpipe Amnesty. SSDPT will lend your pipes to children and young people in Scotland who want to learn to play, but can’t afford a set.
“I’ve seen kids come in here with no self confidence and seen the changes that learning an instrument can bring about. It’s amazing to see what piping can do. Learning a skill, making friendships that will last a lifetime, being part of something.”
A tutor in Govan schools, former World Championships winner and member of the Strathclyde Police Band
“The Preston Lodge Pipe Band has grown quickly from a tentative group of new players into the flourishing figurehead of our school and its community.”

Preston Lodge High School, East Lothian
Our Fair Play for Pipes Facebook page will soon become Pipe Bands for Schools.
Expressions of interest are invited for an opportunity to teach chanter and pipes to young people at a school for pupils with learning disabilities in central Edinburgh on Tuesday mornings starting in September. Please contact [email protected] attaching your CV.
