"Michael is the complete package. The guy is knowledgeable, patient, approachable, and friendly. I had no prior experience in any instrument or musical theory, and wanted to learn bagpipes, one of the most esoteric and difficult instruments to learn, and he was willing and enthusiastic about helping make that happen. It's impossible to be in the same room as the guy without absorbing at least a little of his boundless enthusiasm for music and teaching."

"William is an amazing teacher. Not only has he taught me to play the bagpipes but has also managed to form a greater appreciation for music in general. The little tidbits of information he throws into a lesson really stick with my mind and thus I feel I have learned a great deal more than just one instrument. He has clearly been teaching for a long time, you can tell by his patience and his resourcefulness of teaching techniques depending on the student. While he will show you proper technique he also throws in an analogy that manages to make a complicated piece of music understandable. I strongly recommend lessons from William if you want to learn the instrument and the music of bagpiping."

"Michael has been a great bagpipe teacher for our eight year old son. He is encouraging and patient in equal measure. His music choices have been well considered and appreciated. I was concerned about the efficacy of online lessons but it has all gone very smoothly and we haven't had any technical glitches. Despite the physical distance Michael has developed a personalized relationship with our son and it is clear that there is respect in both directions. Thank you very much!"
