Bagpipes:
You don’t need a Bagpipe to get started. All you would need is a practice chanter and a teacher. Starting with basics of learning notes, rhythms and songs, as the students progress they can even bring in songs they would like to learn. Being an expert Voice Teacher I have breathing techniques way beyond your typical Bagpipe teacher.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.
Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

Excellent, easy to work with and very knowledgeable

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.

He was a great teacher. He was very patient with me. I learned a lot in the lessons I took

"Catherine is kind, patient and VERY knowledgeable about piping! She has studied under some of the great USA masters in piping and I would recommend her to anyone taking up the art of the Great Highland Bagpipe."

"After letting my pipes lie unused for nearly fifty years I sought an opportunity to take them up again. I must remark that I was not a highly accomplished piper when I quit earlier. In so doing I consulted the long time owner of a local music store specializing in folk music and instruments and was given William’s name and the recommendation that he was clearly the best local performer/teacher know to him. That was approximately four years ago. I found William to be highly attuned to his student’s needs, strengths, and weaknesses. He is able to direct his teaching to those attributes and make the most effective use of lesson time. I find training with William to be a pleasurable experience and a valuable learning opportunity. In the time I have been taking lessons I have progressed to the point of performing regularly with the Tucson Highlanders and have felt competent enough to register with the Western United States Pipe Band Association as a Grade 4 solo performer. It has also been a great pleasure to watch the progress of some of his other students from being a beginner to performing with the band. Because I had previous experience in instrumental music, I would also comment that my lessons have extended beyond simply fingering the instrument into music theory, history, composition, and elements of arrangement. Every lesson has been a positive and satisfying experience."

"We're super impressed with Michael's teaching style. This is my son's second attempt at learning to play bagpipes. Michael makes it fun, in that he starts teaching songs right away, not only notes. He is very patient and explains what he is teaching."

"Was struggling, but Michael, in 30 minutes, quickly identified what I was doing wrong, helped me understand some pipe " physics" , took me through a series of note sequences, and in 30 minutes I made more progress than I had using videos, books and advice from other pipers. More than anything, he got me engaged and made it fun"
