I started with piping when my daughter was a toddler. I really wanted a new hobby and a reason to get out of the house one night per week to do something social.
My original goal was to become proficient at a new instrument and join a local band for the social aspect. I had already played a couple of other instruments at that time and I grew up in an Irish Catholic family from Massachusetts, so bagpipes have been prevalent at events in my life since I was a child.
I enjoy the Dojo for many reasons... I am more confident with my piping, and the best part is I have made friends all over the world. I love the Dojo community. Everyone is so supportive.
I would not be where I am today as a piper without the Dojo instruction I have received. Experienced pipers often ask me who my teacher is, and I'm proud to say that I learn on the Dojo platform!
