I've been attempting to learn to play bagpipes for several years now all on my own with the help of DVD instruction and your Tune of The Month lessons. I am happy to say that because of your lessons, I am making pretty significant progress and last night on New Year's Eve, went out on my front porch at midnight and piped in the New Year with Auld Lang Syne.
I thank you for your instruction as it has been a big help to me. I live in a small Texas town and I don't think anybody else plays bagpipes here. Because of my size, I am making do with Practice Bagpipes from Bagpipes Galore. I am planning on upgrading to the Scottish Small Pipes soon as my reward to me for the progress I've made.
Several years ago when I bought a better practice chanter, it really brought home to me the importance of having a good instrument since it makes learning and playing a lot more enjoyable.
Thank you once again for your online lessons. I feel like I am one of your students in an actual one on one private lesson.
