  • Summer piping school

    Here is some information about my school that I am doing again this summer along with Murray Henderson down here in Southern California. It is a great school where the focus is on instruction and bagpipe sound. We cover all the bases. The dates are July 6th through the 11th. Please contact Ian Whitelaw for information. email: [email protected]
    telephone 310-634-9726.

    "This school provided a minimum of a year's
    worth of world-class instruction on
    piobaireachd-playing as well as Ceol Beag. I
    have also attended other piping schools. I have
    found that it is rare to find instruction that is
    applicable to one's entire style and repertoire.
    However, this school provided just that type of

    Mr. Whitelaw and Mr. Henderson achieved it
    with their expertise, patience, and ability to
    explain music theory, Scottish piping idiom,
    piobaireachd interpretation. And of course,
    everyone in the course walked away from it
    with a professionally set-up set of pipes with
    other-worldly tone.

    I recommend this course to anyone truly
    interested in improving their piping.
