Default Re: On competition - is music a sport

Competition turns anything into a type of sport.

As for piping, the competition angle is invigorating in a way -- as it makes you want to improve, and adds a bit of zest to Highland Games. Without competitions there would probably be no Highland Games.

But at the same time, it's what got me out of piping (that, and a family issue). There was an attitude about the competition from the band angle that I just didn't agree with. Piping wasn't fun anymore. Let the pipes sit in the box for a few years = problem solved.
