Default Re: Best Book for Piobaireachd Intro?

I now have 2 people who are going to give the books a go. Looking forward to hearing what they think of the book and the videos.

Sorry guys, my limit is the 2.

John

John, as a matter of interest, would you recommend using your book without a tutor? I always thought it essential to have a tutor when learning piobaireachd, until I heard one of the students on a COP Piobaireachd course who had learned, as I understand it, totally from CDs. He more than held his own amongst the learners. Despite this, I tended to think a tutor was very important.

In my opinion, a good tutor book will give you a thorough grounding in the basics and act as an excellent reference. However, I do feel that you need to work with a qualified teacher to ensure that you are on the correct path.
