The aims of ‘The Band’ are to adopt Highland Pipe Band music for enjoyment and social interaction, continuing the Scottish/Irish tradition. The club plays and promotes traditional Highland Bagpipe music, performs Celtic music including vocal renditions as an Ensemble group, performs Highland dancing and provides a forum for teaching and development of music skills with students, La Trobe staff, past students and assisting playing members. The Band meets once per week to be taught on and rehearse on various instruments. New members, playing and non-playing are always most welcome to join in the various activities. ‘The Band’ when up to sufficient strength and playing standard, will be capable of holding concerts, entering competitions and playing for paid functions both within the University and publicly.
