Private Bagpipes Teacher

My initial instruction follows the John Sprague school method, which focuses on precise articulation of ornamentation, leading into pipe band music.

Once a grounding in pipe band technique has been achieved, I can continue to work with students along the pipe band path through the intermediate level, or branch off into folk/kitchen piping, informed my extensive experience as a fiddler.

I am also willing to teach small pipe and border pipe students.

About Peter

I am a traditional Scottish musician specializing in 18th century music. I have studied Highland bag piping since 2001 and Scottish Fiddling since 2002 (with a background in classical violin). I teach both Scottish Fiddle and Highland Bagpipes, as well as Scottish Small pipes and Border pipes. I

Peter is an outstanding instructor! He has a nice space for teaching and works to understand where the student is starting from - making sure to emphasize a base of fundamentals that will see you through for the rest of your piping career. I highly recommend him!
Amy
Peter is very patient and exceptionally knowledgeable. He is very analytical in his teaching. I am a new student (only a few lessons) and I am confident he will be able to provide the critical but positive instruction and encouragement that I need. His enthusiasm and passion for music is contagious. In fact, he gives detailed oral histories and music theory explanations related to the topic of the lesson. Most teachers boot you out when time is up - not Peter - he always finishes on the right note. Plus he has an adorable cat assistant, Rory, as a side kick.

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

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!

"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!"

"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 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 understanding 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."
