Default Re: Introductions

Hi! I'm a beginner who just bought a set of McCallum pipes on a visit to Glasgow. I'm a serious (performing) amateur clarinettist and always wanted to try bagpipes. I have a day job in computer software. I've started on the practice chanter and found a local teacher. From my beginner vantage point it looks like working up to the pressure and airflow requirements of the bagpipes will be my biggest challenge. I thought after playing bass clarinet it couldn't be too bad, but more power and breath is required than I ever expected. I suppose the way forward is just a usual daily practice regimen to get stronger day by day. All advice is welcome!
