This beginners class will introduce the rudiments of playing the Great Highland Bagpipe. Students will learn on a practice chanter. Category: Wind & Free Reed
The instructor will introduce students to the rudiments of playing the Great Highland Bagpipe. Basic fingering and embellishments will be taught. The different types of bagpipe music will be discussed and simple tunes will be taught. This is a class for beginners, and as such, there will be no learning done on the bagpipe itself. Students will learn on the bagpipe's practice instrument, the practice chanter. A limited number of practice chanters will be available for rent for the week if you live locally. Contact the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1 to be advised as to where to buy a chanter online.
