Standard embellishments glossary

On a daily basis, we release exclusive educational content to our basic members, in on-demand video format! Learn tunes and master concepts from any mobile device or computer, a little bit each day. Immerse yourself in bagpipe music, technique, and culture all from the comfort of your device.
Access complete Dojo Tutor and Transition-to-the-Pipes Course!
The Bagpipe as an Extension of you Self Tutor is our own, home grown, bagpipe tutor system. Rather than learning in a linear sequence, we build layers of fingerwork technique from the ground up!

More About Premium Membership Features
In addition to all free and Basic content, Dojo University's Premium Membership delivers:
Access video, audio, and articles by our world-renowned guest instructors
At the top of the Dojo U pyramid, there's our premium content. The very best pipers in the world are creating content, on a daily basis, for your education and enjoyment! Regardless of your age or stage, this feature alone will skyrocket your playing, knowledge, and experience with the bagpipe.
Additional LIVE interactive sessions with premium guest instructors each week.
In addition to on-demand content, our VIP instructors will be available for live sessions, working interactively with our premium members on core topics, Q&A sessions, performance critiques, and more.
Access to our Success Plan Library
Success plans are like "checklists on steroids." When it comes to specific bagpipe topics, you need to have an exact plan to follow, and that's exactly what we've created. They’re all meat and no fluff. If you want backstory and theory, go read an article somewhere. Success Plans are all about taking action and getting results as quickly and easily as possible. Some examples? A 6 month plan to get to the next grade level. A 3-stage gig perfection system. A low-g-oriented embellishment perfection guide. The "nerve buster" system to defeat performance anxiety. Mastering strike-ins.... And more coming all the time.
Access to our exclusive "Dojo U Engage" Facebook group.
Dojo U Premium Members also receive exclusive access to our online "mastermind" forum on Facebook called "Dojo U Engage." Just like a business mastermind group, Dojo U Engage is all about sharing what’s working, and getting help with what isn’t! Many of our members swear this in itself is worth the difference between a basic and premium membership.
