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.

I am a competitive bagpiper in the Midwest Pipeband Association as a soloist and band member. I’ve taught many different ages of students from as young as 6 to as mature as 60’s. I am also a certified special education teacher within the CHicago Public School district.

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.

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.
Paul
Catherine is kind, patient and VERY knowledgeable about piping! She has studied under some of the great USA masters in piping and I would recommend her to anyone taking up the art of the Great Highland Bagpipe.

"Karen fixed my problem in five minutes after I had two years of getting no where. I play clarinet and was curling my fingers like on a clarinet. On a bagpipe, you must lay the fingers flat. Suddenly all the pressure problems with the reed went away."

"After letting my pipes lie unused for nearly fifty years I sought an opportunity to take them up again. I must remark that I was not a highly accomplished piper when I quit earlier. In so doing I consulted the long time owner of a local music store specializing in folk music and instruments and was given William’s name and the recommendation that he was clearly the best local performer/teacher know to him. That was approximately four years ago. I found William to be highly attuned to his student’s needs, strengths, and weaknesses. He is able to direct his teaching to those attributes and make the most effective use of lesson time. I find training with William to be a pleasurable experience and a valuable learning opportunity. In the time I have been taking lessons I have progressed to the point of performing regularly with the Tucson Highlanders and have felt competent enough to register with the Western United States Pipe Band Association as a Grade 4 solo performer. It has also been a great pleasure to watch the progress of some of his other students from being a beginner to performing with the band. Because I had previous experience in instrumental music, I would also comment that my lessons have extended beyond simply fingering the instrument into music theory, history, composition, and elements of arrangement. Every lesson has been a positive and satisfying experience."
