These bagpipe lessons cover some of the basic techniques required to play the bagpipes. Mastering these basic piping skills is important before you decide to move onto more advanced bagpipe playing.
Therefore it is the intention of the lessons found on this page, to introduce you to some of the basic techniques required for bagpipe playing. Bill is known to be a stickler for correct note execution, ask anyone who has had lessons from Bill.
To summarize, these lessons could be useful to you if:
From time to time, record yourself playing and compare your note execution to Bill's. With practice you will soon pick up on the areas of your playing that you will need fine tuning.
If at any time you need some guidance with your lessons, please contact Bill via the contact form and he will get back to you.
Please remember to be persistent and diligent with your bagpipe practice. There is a saying that goes something like this "The harder you practice the luckier you get". I leave you to draw your own conclusion.
We trust that you have have enjoyed these lessons and hope to see you here again.
