Justina H. - Phase 3 - Kathleen Gillies

Hi Justina,

very steady and well tuned here. Your posture is great but.... you could improve it slightly I think. I would aim to close the gap between the inner part of my left elbow and the end tenor drone... If you tucked the pipes up a little further under your arm you would release more of your left wrist. Effectively moving the pipes up and back in your stance. A centimetre would help... this may mean shortening your blow pipe by 0.5 - 1 cm...

Hope that helps,

All the best for the next phase!
