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.

Bagpipes:
You don’t need a Bagpipe to get started. All you would need is a practice chanter and a teacher. Starting with basics of learning notes, rhythms and songs, as the students progress they can even bring in songs they would like to learn. Being an expert Voice Teacher I have breathing techniques way beyond your typical Bagpipe teacher.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.
Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

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

I can highly recommend this very talented musician.
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.
Anthony played thunderstruck by AC/DC for me once and it was simply amazing.

"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"

"A year ago Catherine taught my 13 year old daughter the Chanter and the basics of the Bagpipe. She was very wonderful in the way she communicated on Skype and made each lesson fun and inspiring. My daughter was very eager to spend the time with Catherine and have lessons at least twice a week. Unfortunately, my daughters gymnastics schedule took over and we were not able to continue. As soon as gymnastics ends we hope to be back with Catherine and continue the lessons. She is wonderful, professional and a great inspiring teacher. My daughter and I highly recommend Catherine to anyone looking to learn this wonderful instrument. Catherine is a beautifully skilled musician and the the best to teach the art of the Bagpipe. See you soon!"

"William is an amazing teacher. Not only has he taught me to play the bagpipes but has also managed to form a greater appreciation for music in general. The little tidbits of information he throws into a lesson really stick with my mind and thus I feel I have learned a great deal more than just one instrument. He has clearly been teaching for a long time, you can tell by his patience and his resourcefulness of teaching techniques depending on the student. While he will show you proper technique he also throws in an analogy that manages to make a complicated piece of music understandable. I strongly recommend lessons from William if you want to learn the instrument and the music of bagpiping."
