Support a NEW Piper

A beginning piper requires fundamental equipment in order to properly start their musical journey:

  • a durable plastic practice chanter complete with a reed
  • a tutor book to assist with classroom instruction and for at home review and practice
  • a soft cover case to carry their chanter, tutor book, and other instructional material that will be embroidered with the RRMPB logo and the students first name

A donation of $120 CDN will support this NEW piper in getting the quality start that they deserve.

Support a NEW Drummer

A beginning drummer requires fundamental equipment in order to properly start their musical journey:

  • a pair of quality wooden drumming sticks
  • a quality drum pad made from durable long-lasting material
  • a tutor book to assist with classroom instruction and for at home review and practice
  • a carrying case for their sticks, pad, tutor book, and other instructional material that will be embroidered with the RRMPB log and the students first name

A donation of $120 CDN will support this NEW drummer in getting the quality start that they deserve.

Sponsor a new drummer to play on a Drum –

BRONZE LEVEL SPONSOR

Given the high-level quality of instruction for the future drum corps, it is expected that due to the nature of the instrument, our drummers will require actual drums sooner rather than later.  Simple rudiments and exercises can be played on the drum quite early in their progression to becoming drummers.  Similar to Highland Bagpipes, pipe band snare drums all look and sound very similar today.  RRMPB will ensure that the drums that are purchased with the sponsorship received will be of the utmost quality and construction.

A minimum sponsorship of $1,200 CND will ensure the drummer receives a quality instrument to be used while they are a member of the RRMPB drum corps.  This amount will also cover the cost of a protective hard shell case to ensure that your investment lasts and does not get damaged while being transported.  Sponsors will have the option of having their names, or corporate brand listed on our Sponsor page during the current year that the donation was received.

Sponsor a new piper to be a PIPER –

BRONZE LEVEL SPONSOR

Once the piper has reached the appropriate level of proficiency on the practice chanter, they will require an actual bagpipe to continue their musical advancement.  Highland Bagpipes, in general, are all very similar today.  There are differences however.  They can be found in the quality of the construction, the type of materials used, and the overall sound of the instrument once assembled.  Rest assured, should a sponsorship be received of this magnitude, the RRMPB will ensure that the best possible instrument for the best possible price will be purchased.

A minimum sponsorship of $1,500 CND will ensure the piper receives a quality instrument to be used while they are a member of the RRMPB.  It will also purchase a high quality protective case to transport the pipes to and from practices, lessons, and community events.  Sponsors will have the option of having their names, or corporate brand listed on our Sponsor page during the current year that the donation was received.

Dress a Piper or Drummer to perform in the community or compete at the Games –

SILVER LEVEL SPONSOR

All pipers and drummers of the RRMPB will be required to have matching uniforms that will bring honour to the memory of Ryan Russell, and that also will instill pride and dignity to it’s young members.

Traditional Highland Dress is quite prohibitive to young organizations such ours.  As an example, the cost of a kilt alone can range from $550 CDN to $750.  Traditional Ghillie Brogues (footwear) are in the range of $150. Even with these two items, the young piper or drummer will still require a traditional Glenn (Hat, $70), Sporran (pouch worn at front of kilt, $220), belt ($70), shirt and tie ($50), and an Argyll jacket and waist coat ($500).

A sponsorship of $2,000 CDN will ensure that the young piper or drummer will be outfitted from head to toe, and be ready to perform in the community at events, or compete at the Highland Games.  Sponsors will have the option of having their names, or corporate brand listed on our Sponsor page for a two year period from the date that the donation was received.

Sponsor a Drum Corps –

GOLD LEVEL SPONSOR

A pipe band Drum Corps usually consists of the following instruments:

  • several SNARE drums
  • a smaller number of  TENOR drums
  • one BASS drum

A minimum sponsorship of $10,000 CDN will ensure that instruments of the highest quality and durability are purchased for these young players.

Sponsors will have the option of having their names, or corporate band listed on our Sponsor page for a three year period from the date that the donation was received.

In addition, the sponsor will have the pleasure of having the RRMPB perform at an event of their choosing (i.e. birthday party, corporate events, community functions).  Some restrictions do apply due to the age of the performers – please contact for further information.

Sponsor a Pipe Corps –

PLATINUM LEVEL SPONSOR

A pipe corps in the Greater Toronto area usually consists of anywhere from eight to twenty pipers.

A minimum sponsorship of $20,000 CDN can ensure that hand picked Highland Bagpipes expertly constructed from the highest quality materials, and with a beautiful sound, will be purchased.

Sponsors will have the option of having their names, or corporate brand listed on our Sponsor page for a four year period from the date that the donation was received.

In addition, the sponsor will have the pleasure of having the RRMPB perform at TWO (2) events of their choosing (i.e. birthday/retirement, corporate events, community functions).  Some restrictions do apply due to the age of the performers – please contact for further information.
