Highland Bagpipes I

January 23 through March 20

Instructor: George Balderose

Learning the pipes begins with a quiet instrument called the practice chanter, which is a reed instrument with the same number of finger holes as the chanter of the bagpipes. This enables you to quietly learn the correct fingering of pipe music without blowing hard and making a lot of terrible noises. This course will focus on correct fingering technique and will cover the rudiments of music, such as tone, tuning, rhythm and expression. To purchase a practice chanter and instructional book contact the instructor at info@bagpiping.org
