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.

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.

A year ago Catherine taught my 13 year old daughter the Chanter and the basics of the Bagpipe. She was very wonderful in the way she communicated on Skype and made each lesson fun and inspiring. My daughter was very eager to spend the time with Catherine and have lessons at least twice a week. Unfortunately, my daughters gymnastics schedule took over and we were not able to continue. As soon as gymnastics ends we hope to be back with Catherine and continue the lessons. She is wonderful, professional and a great inspiring teacher. My daughter and I highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking to learn this wonderful instrument. Catherine is a beautifully skilled musician and the the best to teach the art of the Bagpipe. See you soon!

My son has been taking lessons with Catherine for almost 2 years. We started with in-person lessons and then went to doing the lessons online. She is extremely knowledgeable about music and bagpipes and my son is learning a lot from her. I also started taking lessons from her and even though I didn't pick it up as fast as my son she was able to get me up on pipes. She is great about sending videos to help with practicing and always has great feedback during lessons.
AJ
Catherine is an incredible teacher. She is patient, kind, understanding, and constructive. She knows so much, not just about how to play the bagpipes, but also how to express the music you play. I am very lucky to have had her as my bagpipe instructor and would 100% recommend.

About Anthony

Ever since I was 8 years old, I have loved playing the bagpipes. The instrument was not easy at first - and admittedly I wanted to quit taking lessons early on - but by persevering through the initial learning curve I took off with it and my life has honestly never been the same since. My hope is t

"I am a Retired Federal Special Agent and I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I've always wanted to learn how to play the Highland Bagpipes. I met William a few years ago and he has made my dream come true. William is a caring and patient instructor. He will teach you all details and techniques of playing the instrument and how to play the tunes correctly. William will take a complicated piece of music and will show you an easy path to successful completion of of playing the tune. I have seen William teach all ages and genders and special needs students and all have been successful musicians. William has transformed this hard headed student from a person that could not read music to a performing as a band member with the Tucson Highlanders Pipe band. I STRONGLY recommend William as a Bagpipe Instructor."

"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."

"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"
