Novice Bagpipe Lessons
This is probably the most important section of learning to play the bagpipes. It cover all the major building blocks for becoming a good player so do not rush through these lessons. You still won't need a set of pipes to complete this section, all you will need is your practice chanter. You will learn most of the major embellishments that make the bagpipes such a distinct instrument and some more useful theory about timing.

Follow these lessons in order for best results and remember some lessons may take an hour and others may take a month. These lessons are the building blocks of your playing so don't move on from one section until you have mastered the one prior. A person should be able to get through the Novice section in 6 months to a year. Once you have, continue to the Intermediate section. Good luck and feel free to contact me with any questions you may encounter throughout your lessons.
