When I was a lad, the school I attended had a pipe band. Almost on a whim I decided I wanted to have a go at it. After leaving school I just wanted to play in a band and compete. Originally my piano teacher suggested I take up a wind instrument. She was right! Once I tried the pipes, I caught the bug.
I pretty much stopped playing in my 30's, having no where to practice and having moved away from the band. I had difficulty playing poorly maintained pipes leading to a downward spiral.
I stopped playing for quite a while but I saw a notification of a Dojo Session that interested me started with a free trial. It was great and it rekindled my enthusiasm!
The Dojo has a large repository of experience providing a supplement to my current private teacher. Especially during Covid lockdown, the Dojo has been a contact with the real world both improving my piping and my sense of wellbeing.
