Coming up..

Free Bagpipe Workshop
0900 -1145
Town Hall, High Street, Auchtermuchty, Fife.

When? 

Saturdays when demand dictates, only needs to be a few pipers, learners or more experienced, likely to be 19th or 26th of October, unless there's a demand. 

We could start something here, all you pipers who want to get together for a fun team practice. No slacking on the technical demands, but that's how it becomes fun, doing it right, - right? 

 Let me know if you're interested. 

This workshop is likely to be run periodically throughout the year, depending on interest. Bring your pipes and/ or practice chanter or just yourself and join in the workshop. What's involved in learning to tuning pipes, where to buy pipes or equipment, how to 'hemp up', or simply improve your playing technique. You bring the agenda.

Also the possibility of individual or group tuition, starting at £8 per person for a group of up to 6 of similar standard, usually beginners. £15 for individual tuition. This could be a regular lesson if Saturday morning suits you. 

Lesson timings

0900 - 0945

1000 - 1045

1100 - 1145

Please get in touch to let me know your standard (beginner/ novice/ intermediate/ advanced, etc.) to book or enquire.
