Want to learn how to play the Bagpipes?


Studying the Great Highland Bagpipe is both challenging and fulfilling. It teaches dedication, self-motivation and tradition while giving you a source of pride and accomplishment.

Students of all ages are welcome and no previous musical experience is necessary. Although any musical skills you already have will certainly help.

The Great Highland Bagpipe (GHB) is said to be the most difficult instrument to learn. We disagree. In fact, we believe that many instruments are far more difficult to learn.

However, the GHB is by far the most physically challenging instrument to play. Therefore, diligent practice and conditioning are required to maintain a level of proficiency.

Expectations are high for our students in the way of practice and responsibility. The more quality, productive time a student can spend with the instrument, the less frustrating the experience will be and the more fun the student will have.

The diligent student will be rewarded with a skill and art form that is both ancient and beautiful; a cultural tradition that is something to be revered and passed on to future generations.

If you are interested in learning to play the bagpipes, please contact for a consultation.
