The band is a program of the Conservatory of Performing Arts at the University of Regina Centre for Continuing Education. Our first practice space at the university was in Darke Hall on the College Avenue Campus, and all bagpipe and drum lessons were taught there. As renovations occur, the Pipe Band is currently practicing at Westminster United Church. As well as the pipe band program, the Conservatory offers private tuition for all ages, and occasional adult group lessons. As well, students are able to obtain "Piping and Drumming Qualifications Board" certification through the Conservatory.
Of course the band started as the Grade 4 arm of the City of Regina Pipe Band, and we are still affilated with and financially supported by the CRPB. We wear the same tartan, and our instructional staff includes members of the CRPB.
