For online lessons I use all of the latest technology including screen sharing, virtual snip and sketch and ink, lesson and practice follow up videos, and many other awesome tools to enhance the online experience. 26 years experience teaching beginner to professional level pipers.

Michael is an incredible teacher. My fiance has never played a musical instrument before in his life and I got him a few lessons for his birthday. At first, I wasn't sure how virtual music lessons would go, but Michael is by all accounts, an incredibly engaging, funny, and knowledgeable instructor. My fiance looks forward to his weekly lessons with Michael. In particular, he enjoys learning about the history of this incredible instrument alongside the actual music theory and practical aspects of learning a new instrument.

It has been truly incredible to witness my fiance transform in a few short weeks from someone scared of learning a new instrument to someone who is confident that he can learn a new skill provided he puts in the time and effort to practice and show up! Michael has given him the confidence and the inspiration to make amazing progress as a student.

I highly recommend Michael as an instructor. He really makes the virtual format work and he knows how to introduce beginner musicians to the joys of learning how to express yourself on an instrument.

What a fun way to spend our quarantine time! Michael was a great bagpipe instructor for my teenage son. He helped him to find the right equipment and made playing the bagpipes fun from the very first lesson. Thanks, Michael!

Awesome first lesson!

Excellent! My weekly bagpipe lessons with Catherine are absolutely the highlight of my week. She presents and instructs at a very comfortable pace and is so clear and patient throughout. As each lesson builds on the previous lesson, I can feel the progression. Her love of the bagpipes is evident which has been such an inspiration.

"I can highly recommend this very talented musician.
I have taken five lessons with Anthony and have very much enjoyed his passion and teaching style. He is patient and non-judgmental and has a very thoughtful process for learning bagpipe techniques.
I appreciate that he sends me a video demonstration of what we just covered in the lesson to fall back on.
Anthony played thunderstruck by AC/DC for me once and it was simply amazing."

"I have only been working with William for about a month now, and he makes learning bagpipes fun and enjoyable. As an instructor, he makes me feel comfortable and seems to have an amazing amount of patience for helping me progress with my ability to understand the instrument from both a musical and technical perspective. He is very responsive to my inquiries and even though the instruction is online, I feel like he is in my living room. I look forward to continued lessons with him as he helps me get better at learning how to play this instrument."
