Classes are offered through Troy Adult and Community Education, taught primarily by Pipe Major William O'Donnell. The lessons are given in Fall, Winter, and Spring, at 7:30pm on Thursdays.
Students of all ages are welcome; no bagpipes or prior musical experience is required. You will have to forget everything you ever learned about playing a musical instrument anyway. You do NOT need to know how to read music.
Cost is $99 for approx. 10 weeks of class, plus about $70 for a practice chanter (you can buy one the first day of class -- don't try to buy one on your own).
This is an excellent way to start a lifelong piping career, or just to gain a basic understanding of the instrument to increase your listening enjoyment.
