The piping and drumming hub of Asia

Beyond The Octave is a bagpipe band one-stop centre, providing piping and drumming lessons, pipe band supplies, performances and consultations.

We started in 2012, with the aim of sharing pipe band music in Singapore and Asia. On top of promoting the music, we aspire to provide quality music programmes for our students to learn a skill that will last a lifetime. In the years to come, we hope to develop many more pipe bands in various parts of Asia.

Most of our students have little to no music experience too! Fret not. We have a syllabus, lesson plan and workbook that was designed with absolute beginners in mind.

You’ve come to the right place! We manage a number of pipers and bands that have performed for weddings, corporate events and even ceilidhs! Drop us an enquiry and we will be happy to support your special day.

Absolutely. We have many years of experience playing and working with bagpipes. We know what’s good for your playing level, playing environment (yes, it does matter!) and budget.
