https://soundcloud.com/pipersdojo/212-lament-for-the-iolaire-06052017 A run-through of Donald MacLeod's "Lament for the Iolaire." This was a tune written to lament a ship returning from from WWI whose sinking on January 1st, 1919 in the Minch was one of the worst maritime disasters in United Kingdom history. At least 205 men perished of the 280 aboard.
A "Mock Competition" is where I set a specific time (in this case 1045AM) to perform, and allow myself 4 minutes to tune up prior to the tune - just as if I were actually competing. Today's tune: Lord Berisdale's Salute. Be sure to follow @pipersdojo ... wherever social media is found :)

https://soundcloud.com/pipersdojo/209-focusing-on-tonal-production-has-to-come-before-you-focus-on-tuning-4212017 A second chunk of the Tuning Clinic we ran in April!

In the span of our session, we want to focus on something small, and really "go deep" on that topic, so that we actually improve. A few minutes from my morning class here where I elaborate on this idea. Follow us on Instagram/Snapchat/Facebook/YouTube @pipersdojo!
