Default Re: Getting boys onto the pipes from chanter

Update: The boys are playing four tunes on the pipes now, chanter only, no drones. (They also spend time every now and then on drones only for steadiness). Fingers have suddenly improved a whole lot, as well as stamina, and two boys can play three tunes on the trot on pipes with chanter only. Time to open up a drone.

The boy who was lagging behind has had a burst of improvement caused I think by excitement at learning the Glasgow City Police Pipers, and his stamina if anything has overtaken the two others.
Noble and manly music invigorates the spirit, strengthens the wavering man, and incites him to great and worthy deeds. Homer.
