A New Beginning!Here we are...nearly at the beginning of another summer. A lot of people, especially younger people, dread this time of year as it signals back to school time.
Even as we grow into adults, we still tend to work on this same schedule. The end of summer is sad as it represents a time for the fun to stop and the work to begin. In a way, that’s true. But perhaps the fall signals a time to start a new, fun project...and get serious about it, too.
Be the Role Model!As your kids go back to school, you can set an example by becoming a student yourself...a student of the Great Highland Bagpipe September is a great time to begin bagpipe lessons, and you can initiate the process by finding a bagpipe teacher to guide you through this process.
This is the time of year when bagpipers start choosing the music to be played in competition for next season, as that season starts in the spring. If you do this, you then have about 6 to 7 months to learn your new music.
Get started now!So, in a nutshell, here’s what you need to do to get off to a solid start:
