Interested in playing the pipes or drums?
The Celtic Cross band is looking for experienced pipers as well as anyone interested in the learning the art. The teaching sessions are one hour weekly, usually Thursday evenings prior to the band's standard practice sessions. A nominal weekly fee is charged.
Beginners start with a practice chanter to learn the fundamentals and basic tunes. Usually it takes about 6 months before students progress to a set of bagpipes.
Student drummers are also welcome for either snare, bass or tom-toms. Practice times are similar to those for pipers.
Band rehearsals are held at the Mill Plain Fire Department, located at 54 Mill Plain Road, in Danbury, CT. We usually meet every Thursday from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Stop by and see what it's all about. Please use the contact information below to confirm our rehearsal schedule. Visitors are welcome.
