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.

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.

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!

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

Anthony takes time to explain concepts and assists you when you have difficulty understanding how to play a piece. He gets on your level to make sure you stay motivated and encourages you to keep practicing and makes playing fun so you become a great piper!

"Michael is an amazing instructor. He has been great at teaching me, as I came to him never having played an instrument, or knowing how to read music. We started right from the beginning and now a year and a half in I'm starting to play on the real thing. I would not recommend anyone else, he is top notch!"

"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"

"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."
