Catherine is a great instructor, she motivates you to keep playing, because with her lessons you get better and better. She gives a personal touch to each student. I highly recommend taking lessons.
Janice B.
Catherine is a wonderful instructor! She is very positive, kind and patient. I highly recommend her!
James
Catherine is a calm, kind but no nonsense teacher. She has a passion to help her students grow. She has enabled me to hear my music in a way I never could before. She has also taught me a great deal about staying on the beat which is the foundation to truly expressing any piece of music and essential to playing with other musicians. In addition she is very good at helping students understand the basic techniques of piping. Her many years as a professional solo piper and playing in bands give her a deep reservoir for students to tap into. I give her my highest recommendation.

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

"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!"

"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."
