Tune Of The Month for Oct 09 - Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band
October 09, 2009

Bill Robertson here again with the September 09 issue of Tune Of The Month.

I have chosen a longtime favourite tune of mine Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band, composed by the late Roderick Campbell. I hope you enjoy the tune and remember to contact me via the website should you have any questions about the tune.

Bruce Campbell, the editor of Piping World recently published an article in the Oct 09 edition titled A New Chapter In Piping History. In this article he mentions the success Henrik Hornhaver has had with my online piping lessons. Henrik recently earned his Preliminary and Elementary Certificate from the RNZPBA College of Piping and Drumming. As far as I am aware Henrik is the first person to earn these credentials from RNZPBA college using online tuition. Once again well done Henrik.

We would still like to hear from you if you have a testimonial or endorsements.

Anyway that is all for this month. Once again take care and enjoy the lesson.
Bill Robertson

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 that Highland), some bands, news, and featured extracts from top contests both solo and band 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.
