Default I'm not lost, just out of place

OK Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a bit of a problem that you are best situated to assist with, and less due to my OK attempts at piping, than a need to familiarize a few people to Scottish Drumming which isn't taught in most American forms of music.

Can you provide links I can ask the new Drummers for the Gulfport Fire Department Pipes and Drums to view. I can try to describe starting rolls, and why pipers need time to inflate the bags, but to help the drummers get the nuances of style it will take drummers. Not an adequate piper with barely half a clue about two sticks, or mallets, and a drum head stretched over a frame with other parts I'm clueless about.

Thank you for your time and hopefully you had a bit of laugh at my attempt at self effacing humor. Also, I shall ask the drummers to view the forum so that they may ask questions directly.
Breaching the peace? What bagpipes officer?

The https://pipebanddrummer.com/ website is an amazing resource. Definitely a good place to start.
