","I think that one of the greatest things about playing the bagpipe is marching. I think most of our audience thinks so as well. I play a lot of weddings and funerals in the course of a year. When the bagpipe is allowed to play inside the church I always recommend a ""bagpipe recessional"". At the end of a wedding, I will march from the back of the church while playing the recessional to the front counter march in front of the couple and lead them out to their receiving line. I also do the same process in a funeral ceremony with different music of course. Performing for the public is more than just standing in place and playing tunes over other their heads or one type of tune. Again our job as performers is to initiate the public into the bagpiping world. From that experience comes not only future customers but also future pipers."
