Welcome to the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band (RMMPB) webpage, a proud part of the SFU Pipe Band organization located at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
. All proceeds go to the BC Cancer Foundation.
ALL RMM Pipe Bands are preparing for the 2015 competition season and look forward to participating in Highland Games across British Columbia, Alberta and Washington State. RMM currently has bands competing in Grades 2, 3 and two bands in Grade 5. We look forward to a challenging competition season and wish all of our competitors a very successful season.
THE 2015 Robbie Burns Dinner was recently held at the Executive Inn in Coquitlam, BC. Once again supporters of the organization were entertained by all of our RMM bands including the SFU Pipe Band and Heather Jolley Highland Dancers. We wish to thank everyone who attended, made financial donations or were the successful bidders in our yearly silent auction.
Because the RMM Pipe Band program is comprised of modivated youth, teens and adults between the ages 6-60, we are proud to receive instruction from six time World Pipe Band champion SFU Pipe Band players. Under the SFU Pipe Band organizational umbrella, RMM ensures the highest level of teaching and playing standards are maintained throughout the entire year. Our program takes students from Introduction to Scottish Music (6-8 yrs) and Beginner Instruments (8-16 yrs) up through into the adult ranks of our Grade 2 and SFU Pipe Bands. With our multi tiered pipe band approach, players remain under a single organizational umbrella and merely change grades rather than uniforms. Few organizations exist that offer this type of organizational structure or the opportunity to promote into a Grade 1 level pipe band after starting out in the organization at the Introduction to Scottish Music level.
Instructors including P/M Alan Bevan (SFUPB), P/M Terry Lee (SFUPB-P/M Retired), P/S Jack Lee (SFUPB) D/S Reid Maxwell (SFUPB) and numerous other world class players are waiting to instruct youth from around the world who are interested learning pipes and drums from the six time world champion SFU Pipe Band.
