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 have taken five lessons with Anthony and have very much enjoyed his passion and teaching style. He is patient and non-judgmental and has a very thoughtful process for learning bagpipe techniques.
I appreciate that he sends me a video demonstration of what we just covered in the lesson to fall back on.

"Micheal is an excellent musician and an excellent teacher. He is enthusiastic, encouraging, flexible, and versatile. He has a pleasant sense of humor, a friendly and relaxed demeanor, and a deep love for music. While Micheal knows a great deal about music theory, he also knows all about the reality of playing music live. He will teach you to play, and he will take the time to teach you the theory, if you want to know. He will guide you with care, reveal the subtleties of the instrument and it's music, and will make sure you get it right. Michael works well with children and adults. Not only do I take lessons from him, but have sent other members of my family to him, as well."

"William as been giving me lessons on the bagpipes since January of 2013, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. William's guidance, style, and skill have taken me from my first lesson on the practice chanter to my first public performances.

William has a easy-going, comfortable and capable style of teaching. He is comfortable adapting to each student's wants and needs rather than forcing each student to follow the same lessons and learning path. He has taught the bagpipes to students from all walks of life and ages.

I've been very happy with his training. I'm looking forward to continuing my training with him, and would recommend him to beginners and experienced musicians alike."

"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."
