As a former school teacher and understanding what it's like to learn a new subject like an instrument and the Bagpipes on top of that - I knew I wanted to learn how to play because I just Loved the sound from the pipes! So what's it going to take, what's involved, how much time do I have to put in and is it really that hard. I was nervous at first like many students because I too never played an instrument. So... I started out on a "Chanter" along with a book and learned so many cool notes and proper fingering. Then some more notes and then a tune. I had instruction early on which I am grateful for. I remember like it was yesterday. Like other things in life if you want to do something you will find a way. Practice 15 minutes a day will work. The chanter is quiet - great for inside - super to learn on. A must and it was just a major blast! I practice the chanter every day for years now. It's my go to- That is where we start and build up to play the Bagpipes. Proper technique is a biggy but you will get the hang of it. If I can do it - so can you! I play the Scottish Highland Bagpipes.

Toni is an excellent educator and bagpipe tutor. I'm getting on in years and after emigrating from Scotland as a young man about 35-years prior, I have always had the desire to learn how to play the pipes. I have now been learning the chanter with Toni for a few weeks and appreciate her patience as she teaches me the nuances of piping so that the lesson is enjoyable and easy to follow. I highly recommend Toni.
Great communicator and makes the lessons so very fun and interesting
