robert malcolm memorial pipe band organization
Welcome to the Robert Malcolm Memorial (RMM) Pipe Bands webpage, a proud part of the SFU Pipe Band organization located at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
Twenty-two years ago, the Robert Malcolm Memorial (RMM) Pipe Band organization was founded in honour of two young pipers who died tragically in a motor vehicle accident. Since our founding, approximately 2,000 band members have developed important life-long skills through piping and drumming. Many former members’ own children are now participating in the program. the Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band organization also acts as a system to develop musicians for the six-time World Champion Simon Fraser University Pipe Band (SFUPB) as many graduates from our program are promoted to the SFUPB and have contributed to the band’s international success.
The Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band organization’s mission is to foster the playing and performing of Scottish music by youth aged 6 to adulthood from all cultural backgrounds. We encourage each child to do the best they possibly can, at whatever level they would like to participate. Our organization’s job is to provide the band members with the resources, life lessons, and inspiration they need to succeed in life.
