Preview of a Lesson in the Classroom

Lessons will be delivered on a weekly basis to allow all pipers time to absorb and practice the new material. Lessons will come in many forms. There will be technique exercises for pipers of all levels. Secondly, there will be a tune each week for the band piper and perhaps a third lesson on more advanced music. Each subscriber will be able to download all lessons in the Classroom. After a year in the Classroom, lessons will be moved to the Archives and stored on CD, available for purchase as a complete package. Once downloaded, files may be played directly from your computer or copied to a CD for listening at private times. As a subscriber, I ask one thing only. Please do not distribute this copyright material.

 Each week, you will see
