Default Re: The end of the world as we know it...really?

I think the drama on the podcasts and piping sites are "grade 1 problems."
The vast majority of us are in the lower grades.

The situation in the lower grades probably varies widely from what I gather. I took up the pipes just a few years ago, and the band where I got lessons encouraged me to compete. No barriers beyond being able to play the tunes to the standards of the grade (5). Younger players are encouraged as well, and other pipers have lent, and even given, second hand sets of pipes to students. So friendly bands that have good standards are the future, I say.
