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.

"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."

"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."

"I've only had one full lesson with Catherine and I can still say that in all my years of musical education she's the best teacher I've ever had. She's kind and understanding but not afraid to correct, she's patient and able to be casual but still keeps you on track, and she's very intuitive. I found her predicting or explaining problems I didn't have words for before they even happened, and she has tons of solutions to suggest. If you're looking for a bagpipe instructor she is well worth it!"

"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."
