Bio

I have always enjoyed traditional Irish and Scottish music with a special fondness for the bagpipes.  I had several false starts in trying to learn the bagpipes in the past  but had a difficult time finding instruction and having adequate time to practice.  I retired about 5 years ago, and last year I took up the bagpipes again in earnest.  I have been playing with on line instruction and have seen substantial improvement.  I have about 20 tunes memorized and another 10 or so that I am working on, along with regularly drilling on the basics.  I am pleased with my progress and at the same time frustrated with what I have identified as problems with my playing.  My goal is to just continue improving.  I do not have any plans to compete or play with a band, I am doing this for my own enjoyment and for my friends and family who also enjoy the pipes.
