Bagpipe Lessons

Private one-on-one lessons are available. All that you will require is a practice chanter and determination to start. I will supply you with sheet music. A tutor book is not required. I will recommend several books as the lessons progress to aid you in home practice. For more information about learning to play the bagpipes see my article on the subject.
