We are always looking for new players and members to join the band and club. The FC St. Pauli Pipe Band was formed in 2015 and is currently concentrating on building up new players for the pipe band. Our aim is to play modern compositions as well as traditional tunes according to the rules of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (www.RSPBA.org).
It’s our ambition to work with all members in a respectful, participating and open-communicating club community. We think that to enjoy the learning lessons and to feel welcome in the club environment, is the best foundation to continually getting better as a band. Our next goal is to reach a good (Grade 4) competition-playing standard. To be able to reach this we are working continuously with assistance from scottish teachers on tone, finger techniuqe and ensemble playing.
The band is trained by experienced players and is constantly recruiting players from all over north Germany. Friendships and regular exchanges with other bands, as well as taking part in international piping and drumming schools are encouraged and supported by us and our main club the Football Club St. Pauli from 1910, Hamburg
Our kilt tartan is “Cameron of Erracht” (The Cameron Highlanders).
“Communitas est animus musica” (community is the soul of the music). The band organizes social events, practice-workshops and journeys with musical objectives on a regular basis for all members. The envolvement of families and friends is part of the clubs avowal and very important to us.
Regardless if you are an experienced musician or beginner your contribution is heartily welcome.
