Default Looking for Skype Instructor

Hello all! I've heard good times about Skype lessons (from this forum), and I am looking for an instructor for weekly lessons. I'm not a complete beginner, but doubtlessly I have quiet a few bad habits to unlearn.

So, could you please recommend to me instructors? What have you experiences been? Any tips/advice about this kind of learning?

I live in the US, EST, and I would prefer to have an instructor from this side of the pond... to minimize time-zone issues.

Two that I'm aware of from lurking on this forum are Neil Clark (http://www.greatglenpiping.com/) and Jori Chisholm (http://www.bagpipelessons.com/).

The advantage with Skype is that time zones are easily worked around...not like you have to drive!

You could also try John Cairns in London Ontario from www.bagpipesolutions.com. Read his bio as he's taught alot of students. I can't say enough good things about the program and he has his own instructional books. http://www.hotpipes.com/cairns7.html
