Drumming and piping is a valuable and exciting cultural heritage of Switzerland, practiced in practically all parts of the country. The Swiss Drummers and Pipers Association unites four regional associations with a total of 174 drumming and piping societies under its roof. This includes three societies from abroad. In total, there are about 4,800 drummers, pipers, and buglers active in Switzerland.

In recent years, the STPV has extensively focused on the professionalization of its education, integrating modern educational systems and didactics into its training concept. Meanwhile, courses for instructors and jurors are offered by professionals to ensure that instructors are prepared according to requirements and in a timely manner.
