Default Skype/FaceTime/instruction

I spoke with a lady yesterday, who's looking for online instruction. I've given her a few tips about adjusting reeds, tunic, etc. but she needs more hands- on, (or face to face) instruction to progress. She also plays Celtic Harp.
Is there a list of instructors who offer on-line lessons?

I don’t know of a list....but She could do some legwork to reach out to some usual suspects...e.g. Pipers Dojo (Albany) ,Lee&Sons (Vancouver) Bruce Gandy (CAN) Falkirk Piping (Scotland) ..all top notch resources.

I recently contacted John Recknagel,PM Atlanta Pipe Band
( classicbagpipes@gmail.com ) for a friend now on a few months project in GA.

Thanks for the mention (Falkirk Piping) I'm actually full, have been for some time, but if you look at the website (www.falkirkpiping.com) I have 3 other instructors I steer prospective students towards. I've been getting great feedback from pupils who have went to these guys.

Whatever you do, wish the lady good luck!
