NEW! SOUTHEAST COMMUNITY COLLEGE PIPING CLASS STARTING THIS FALL
Starting Fall 2017 I will be teaching an eight week class at Southeast Community College on Beginning Highland Bagpipe. The class will run eight weeks, once a week, from 6:30pm - 8pm. More information will be forthcoming from Southeast Community College: southeast.edu/Continuing. The class will also be listed in their Fall 2017 Continuing Education Schedule. Now is your chance to see if piping is for you! Please contact me directly through this site if you have any questions.
This will be an introductory class designed for the beginning student. Students will learn the proper fingering for all notes of the bagpipe scale along with some basic ornamentation. This is a round table, hands on class, that will include practice. No prior knowledge of music is necessary. All instructional information will be provided. Students will learn to read basic music and play Amazing Grace on a practice chanter.
Don’t have a practice chanter? No problem. They are readily available from online retailers starting at $26.00.

Last night was great - your role was the absolute key to success - our team will be talking about the evening for years to come - I saw the Coldstream Guard in person when I was 14 years old and from that day forward the sound of the pipes never fails to stir my soul.
