Will I be playing bagpipes right away?

Not really. The first step is learning the basic scale on a practice chanter. The practice chanter is a reed instrument, quite similar-looking to the recorder. There are a few steps to go through before playing the great highland bagpipe, and all will be taught patiently in our bagpiping program.

What is a good time frame before I will be playing bagpipes?

It depends. If you push yourself, it is possible to be on bagpipes after the first year, but mastering the blowing, and playing, will take years. Patience is very important.

More questions to come as we go.
