You might try contacting Neil Clark. http://www.falkirkpiping.com/

He is an outstanding person to learn from! You can review his CV at his webpage, I think that you will find that he is extremely qualified.

I know, I came back into piping as one of Neil's students.

Neil offers a 30 minute class and an hour long class over SKYPE. A one-hour class is currently £22.

Good luck!

Posted today on the National Piping Centre's Bagpipe News. This may be of interest to you and worth following up. Doubtless someone out there can offer comments as to suitability and VFM.

I also give Skype/online lessons. You can find me at either through my YouTube page or my personal website. Always happy to start new pipers!

Cheers!

There are so many options, these days, and growing. The two programs of which I'm most familiar are Bruce Gandy's and Jori Chishom's (bagpipelessons.com).

Aaron Shaw. You couldnít ask for a better teacher. You may know him as the Piper/Singer/Jaw Harp player of the Wicked Tinkers.

He has a way of working with pipers of all skill levels and in a very kind and intuitive manner, and has about 40 years (I think? Sorry if Iím off Aaron!) of experience under his belt.
