Bagpipes Reviews

Max
"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."

"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 accomplishe
d 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."

"Michael is patient and very understanding. He takes his time and my time seriously and does not waste any od it. He is prepared and ready to further my a
bility from zero to reading sheet music in just 4 lessons. The lessons are geared to my level.
I actually look forward to my lessons with Michael."

Tony
"Michael was very helpful with my Skype issues. It was our first lesson and I didn't know that much about Skype. As to his teaching me he was very underst
anding and made me feel as easy. He showed me the proper breathing method with the chanter. I am looking forward to my next lesson with Michael."

John
"Michael takes the time to make sure you do it right! Lots of patience. No better way to start bagpipe lessons than with Michael."
Bill
"Was struggling, but Michael, in 30 minutes, quickly identified what I was doing wrong, helped me understand some pipe " physics" , took me through a ser
ies 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"

Therese
"Anthony is a great teacher; patient and understanding. I am learning much more than I would on my own. When I hit difficult phrases, he helps breakdown th
e segnents then build them back together. Highly recommended!"
