    The pipe major is the director of bagpipe music in a Scottish or Irish pipe band, whether military or civilian. Like the appointment of drum major, the position is derived from British Army traditions. During the early twentieth century, the term sergeant piper was used instead. A pipe major is generally an educated person who is well versed in the history of bagpipe music as well as that of the clan, regiment or relevant host body. He is often assisted by a pipe sergeant.
