Bagpipes:
You don’t need a Bagpipe to get started. All you would need is a practice chanter and a teacher. Starting with basics of learning notes, rhythms and songs, as the students progress they can even bring in songs they would like to learn. Being an expert Voice Teacher I have breathing techniques way beyond your typical Bagpipe teacher.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.

Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

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 can highly recommend this very talented musician.
I have taken five lessons with Anthony and have very much enjoyed his passion and teaching style. He is patient and non-judgmental and has a very thoughtful process for learning bagpipe techniques.
I appreciate that he sends me a video demonstration of what we just covered in the lesson to fall back on.
Anthony played thunderstruck by AC/DC for me once and it was simply amazing.

Excellent. Super patient, personable, knowledgeable.

I have only been working with William for about a month now, and he makes learning bagpipes fun and enjoyable. As an instructor, he makes me feel comfortable and seems to have an amazing amount of patience for helping me progress with my ability to understand the instrument from both a musical and technical perspective. He is very responsive to my inquiries and even though the instruction is online, I feel like he is in my living room. I look forward to continued lessons with him as he helps me get better at learning how to play this instrument.

"Have always wanted to learn to play the bagpipes but nervous about the whole thing! Excited to learn but where and how to start. I found Ms. Toni on Take Lessons who has been amaaazzing getting me comfortable and grabbing hold of this instrument. You know what- so worth the time and gaining ground of learning -really moving forward w my lessons. Cool! But you need an instructor who breaks it down. Simply -easy and super Fun! Ms. Toni helps with all the questions + where to get a chanter. I know I have to spend time learning this part like every day or every other day before the Bagpipes even come into the Big Picture. I'm on my way - pumped to tackle this not so difficult instrument as everyone thinks."

"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!"

"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."
