Private Bagpipes Teacher

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.

Catherine is great!!

Good lesson
Camille
I've only had one full lesson with Catherine and I can still say that in all my years of musical education she's the best teacher I've ever had. She's kind and understanding but not afraid to correct, she's patient and able to be casual but still keeps you on track, and she's very intuitive. I found her predicting or explaining problems I didn't have words for before they even happened, and she has tons of solutions to suggest. If you're looking for a bagpipe instructor she is well worth it!

"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"
