Default Re: Dojo university?

Just wanted to chime in as an intermediate beginner using the Dojo to supplement my primary piping tutelage. The Dojo is a fine resource -- and I'm glad that I have access to so many opportunities to better myself as a piper. Sure, I disagree with some points of the Dojo's philosophy (as others have previously noted) but I also hold firm to the philosophy and approach to piping prescribed by my own tutor. Andrew and his team do great work, and one can never have too many educational resources!

I like Dojo U a lot. I'm a premium member and happy to be one. I've been playing since college days--a long time ago now--and I could really have used a resource like this back in my hometown where getting to my teacher's faraway residence was a considerable drive. The Dojo instructors are very companionable, and their method of teaching tunes--in incremental, oft-replayed chunks--is as good as any other way. Some of the teachers like Bruce Gandy and Callum Beaumont are in the top rank of pipers. I certainly don't recall being exposed to incorrect teaching of embellishments on their site. Still, it would be great if you could make it out to a yearly summer school near you just in case you're developing bad habits too subtle to detect over the computer. Summer Schools are fairly common and occasionally having an instructor's eyes and ears on you, your fingers, and your posture is indispensable. Plus, you'll make new friends that may remain in your life. I wish you all the best as you continue your wonderful journey into the tunes of glory.
