A year ago Catherine taught my 13 year old daughter the Chanter and the basics of the Bagpipe. She was very wonderful in the way she communicated on Skype and made each lesson fun and inspiring. My daughter was very eager to spend the time with Catherine and have lessons at least twice a week. Unfortunately, my daughters gymnastics schedule took over and we were not able to continue. As soon as gymnastics ends we hope to be back with Catherine and continue the lessons. She is wonderful, professional and a great inspiring teacher. My daughter and I highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking to learn this wonderful instrument. Catherine is a beautifully skilled musician and the the best to teach the art of the Bagpipe. See you soon!

My son has been taking lessons with Catherine for almost 2 years. We started with in-person lessons and then went to doing the lessons online. She is extremely knowledgeable about music and bagpipes and my son is learning a lot from her. I also started taking lessons from her and even though I didn't pick it up as fast as my son she was able to get me up on pipes. She is great about sending videos to help with practicing and always has great feedback during lessons.

Catherine is an incredible teacher. She is patient, kind, understanding, and constructive. She knows so much, not just about how to play the bagpipes, but also how to express the music you play. I am very lucky to have had her as my bagpipe instructor and would 100% recommend.

music is my passion and passing on the Celtic culture means a lot to me. I remember when I was searching for my first teacher to learn the great highland bagpipes.
Commitment to this great instrument is not too hard if you have 10 minutes a day, I can get you on a set of pipes performing a time for your friends and family.

About Patrick

I am a competitive bagpiper in the Midwest Pipeband Association as a soloist and band member. I’ve taught many different ages of students from as young as 6 to as mature as 60’s. I am also a certified special education teacher within the CHicago Public School district.

Patrick was a fantastic teacher. He was always very relaxed and easygoing. At the same time, he had something about him that just inspired me to keep practicing. He really helped to cement my love for the Bagpipes and holds a special place in my heart.

"Micheal is an excellent musician and an excellent teacher. He is enthusiastic, encouraging, flexible, and versatile. He has a pleasant sense of humor, a friendly and relaxed demeanor, and a deep love for music. While Micheal knows a great deal about music theory, he also knows all about the reality of playing music live. He will teach you to play, and he will take the time to teach you the theory, if you want to know. He will guide you with care, reveal the subtleties of the instrument and it's music, and will make sure you get it right. Michael works well with children and adults. Not only do I take lessons from him, but have sent other members of my family to him, as well."

"I am a Retired Federal Special Agent and I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I've always wanted to learn how to play the Highland Bagpipes. I met William a few years ago and he has made my dream come true. William is a caring and patient instructor. He will teach you all details and techniques of playing the instrument and how to play the tunes correctly. William will take a complicated piece of music and will show you an easy path to successful completion of of playing the tune. I have seen William teach all ages and genders and special needs students and all have been successful musicians. William has transformed this hard headed student from a person that could not read music to a performing as a band member with the Tucson Highlanders Pipe band. I STRONGLY recommend William as a Bagpipe Instructor."
