my experience at school. Music tuition with me can be as technical or as artistic as the student wishes. I always prefer to take a more practical approach and play by feel to explore expression, but I will work with the student to whatever they are comfortable with. Moreover, I try and equip my students with all the knowledge they require to develop their craft without my involvement. Musicians can learn more and flourish once...
in the Scottish Smallpipes - a type of bagpipe that uses Highand Bagpipe fingering and grace notes. I can teach Highland Bagpipe style on the practise chanter (having learnt this method) but I don't actually perform on the Great Highland Bagpipe.

Professional: Professional Piping (1983)
my students can see progress each week (or per session) as I believe that to labour the basics for too long can lead to the student being disillusioned and make them bored and want to give up.
