We also pride ourselves on being a teaching band. Many of our
current members came to us with nothing but a desire to
learn. These individuals are now active, playing members of
our corps. So if you have a desire to learn and are in the
Brooklyn, N.Y. area or are willing to travel, please check out the New Members
page of this website for contact information.

continually improve the band sound and to have fun while we are
growing. The band has a strong focus on improvement and development and

the Pipes and Drums. The Band performs several dozen times a

endless good times, and above all, the joys of achievement are the
reward of hours of dedicated practice. New members are always welcome!
