School of piping and drumming

Black Raven Pipe Band is committed to keeping the arts of Piping and Drumming alive in the village of Lusk and
surrounding areas.


Beginner students aged 7 years and upwards are instructed on Bagpipes (Chanter), Snare Drum, Tenor Drum and Bass
Drum throughout the Black Raven School of Piping and Drumming. We are also in a position to instruct students who
are in their teenage years.

Our instructors have many years experience playing in the Black Raven and have achieved titles at All Ireland
and indeed World level. They have the enthusiasm and commitment to take their students to the top level in
piping and drumming. The aim of the Black Raven Pipe Band is to compete at the highest level whilst ensuring that
continue to teach as many local young pipers and drummers as we can.

Following the band’s performance at the recent Carol Service in Saint Macullins Church and the fantastic reception
we received,we have had a large number of enquiries regarding membership of the band.


It was the intention of the band to start a second round of classes for piping and drumming later in the year. However,
due to the large number of people requesting to learn to play in the band, it was decided to hold an information and
enrolment evening at Lusk Parish Centre (Old School) on Wednesday 15th January 2014 at 7.00pm.


Classes will commence on Wednesday the 22nd January 2014 from 7pm to 8pm.. Tuition will be given in Piping, Drumming
and Drum Majors. For further information please contact Seamus Russell by email or by telephone
087-2621312 between the hours of 6.00pm and 9.00pm. Black Raven Pipe Band is focused on competing at the highest level
of pipe band competition. “Dedicated to teaching youth through Music” ensures that the band continues to teach the
traditional art of Piping, Snare, Tenor and Bass drums in Lusk and surrounding areas.
