Catherine is not only a great piper, but she's a very calm and understanding teacher. Always encouraging and full of good suggestions for improvement.
Gabriel
Catherine is the best kind of teacher! Her passion for the pipes is tangible and exciting. She is a patient teacher who makes gentle, yet specific instructions and corrections. During my time working with her I was surprised how fast I progressed from someone with no experience with the bagpipes to playing my first song. I would absolutely recommend Catherine to anyone interested in learning or even just getting more information on the pipes!

Toni is smart, friendly, personable and GREAT to work with for special occasions. We are happy to see her play the pipes.

my kids take piano, voice and acting lessons. so i felt outside the loop, considered guitar until a friend suggested bag pipes help you stay in great shape. so after a few in person lessons ( Toni ) i don't sound too awful and it takes a lot of cardio to keep it going. if on the fence.. GO for it !!

"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."

"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!"
