Tune Of The Month for March 2010 - Donald McKillop
March 13, 2010
Dear

Bill Robertson here again with the March 2010 issue of Tune Of The Month.

For this months bagpipe lesson, I have chosen the tune Donald McKillop, which was composed by my good friend P/M Sandy Hain, formerly Pipe Major, 2nd Battalion, The Black Watch.

I hope you enjoy the tune and remember to contact me via the website should you have any questions about the tune. The above link will redirect you to a section, towards the bottom of the lesson page where you can submit a comment or ask a question.

In closing I came across this site and thought that it may be of interest to some www.your-kilts.com

Anyway that is all for this month.

Kind Regards.

Bill Robertson


Interactive Bagpipe Tutorials on DVD

My 3 Interactive Bagpipe Tutorials accommodate pipers who are just beginning to learn how to play the bagpipes right through too those who wish to learn to play Piobaireachd.

You can view the DVD Tutorials at the following links:

While you are on this page take a look at the short video which will give you an overview of how the interactive DVD's work.


Pipeline BBC, Radio Scotland:

Radio Scotland have a weekly broadcast called Pipeline. There website has the following statement, "The definitive pipe music program, featuring news and recordings from the piping world". CLICK HERE to go to the Pipeline web site.

The program changes each week at the weekend and lasts just under the hour. Normally it contains quite a lot of mainly good solo piping (sometimes other than Highland), some bands, news, and featured extracts from top contests both solo and bands, shortly after the events.

Some pipers have rather too high a pitch and as a result a thin sound, and odd lapses in rhythm etc., which we all have some more than others. Still, we can all learn from perceptive listening.
