Bagpipe Lessons-$40 for 30 Minutes
A bagpiper is a person who:
- can play a list of tunes on the bagpipe,
- develop their own music
- and maintain their own bagpipes.
I have been teaching full time for the last 21 years! The goal is to teach you to become a "bagpiper" as state above. I have a lot of great tools and experience to make this a fun and exciting process. I'm going to teach you to read music and rhythm, to play the practice chanter and eventually the bagpipe. Do not go out and buy a set of bagpipes to start. I will help you choose the right instrument when the time comes.
Use the boxes to tailor fit this product to your needs.
There is a $10.00 shipping charge on this product if you buy a chanter or book or both. You will automatically pay the $10 when ordering any option on this product, however if you order only lessons which require no shipping, I will refund the shipping when I process your order. I'm not in the shipping business.
Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!

Poly Practice Chanter
I sell two poly practice chanters in two sizes. I personally like the McCallum or the RG Hardie. These chanters have the true pitches of the bagpipe chanter. You want to train your ear to hear the true bagpipe scale.
The length of the practice chanter should be from your mouth to the top of a table. You don't want to be holding the chanter in your hands while you are playing. If you are tall, you might want to buy the long poly practice chanter.
Practice Chanter Maintenance Kit
This is a practice chanter maintenance kit. I comes with a roll of waxed hemp to make sure that the cap of your chanter is air tight when blowing, two practice chanter replacement reeds so that you always have a working practice chanter and a soft case to store your precious instrument.
