In accordance with our mission as a Non-Profit Organization, Alaska Celtic Pipes & Drums are committed to teaching, promoting, cultivating, and developing quality performance of Scottish Highland Bagpipes and Drums. We provide weekly instruction to anyone that has a desire and commitment to learn Piping or Drumming!
Alaska Celtic Pipes & Drums routinely practice every Friday evening, from 6:30-9:00pm, in Chugiak/Eagle River.
The Band is always looking for new pipers and drummers at any level, and prospective members are welcome at any Band practice.
Interested players should contact the band, and regularly come to weekly Band practice in order to get the full repertoire, including ACPD settings for the minimum set of tunes above.
To compete with the Band, players must achieve proficiency and comfort with both their instrument and the competition tunes. Please contact the Pipe Major for these tune settings.
Whilst we are all continuing to observe COVID precautions, our regular in-person lessons and practices have moved to a distance-learning format via Skype/Zoom. Once our public health officials give us the go-ahead to return to “normal,” we will once again hold in-person lessons and Band Practice on Fridays at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Chugiak. Until then, please contact Pipe Major Richard Christiansen if you are interested in scheduling distance learning Piping/Drumming lessons via Skype or Zoom, or if you are interested in joining the Band, contact the Pipe Major regarding Zoom practices on Friday evenings.
Address for weekly Lessons, Friday evenings 5:30-6:30pm, (when we finally open up,) with Band Practice to follow:
