Dubuque Fire Pipes & Drums

New Recruits

The Dubuque Fire Pipes & Drums welcomes inquiries about membership in the band.


Prospective pipers are invited to contact Bill Spivey, Pipe Major, and prospective drummers are invited to contact Sally Stulken, Drum Sergeant.


The band offers lessons to prospective members.  Enthusiasm and a willingness to practice are expected.  Depending on previous musical understanding and sweat equity, it can take one to two years for novice pipers to reach the level of proficiency required for playing in public with the band.


The Dubuque Fire Pipes & Drums holds rehearsals at least twice a month in the off season (October - February) and more frequently during the rest of the year.
