You Will Discover:

- The 2 main ways bagpipes Navigate the Bagpipe Scale in order to be able to play literally any tune. Don't waste 1 minute learning to sight-read - just learn the two types of Scale Navigation!

- What gracenotes are, how the vast majority of pipers don't understand their true purpose, and 2 key gracenote parameters that will allow you to get the perfect gracenote, every time!.

- How to decode seemingly complicated embellishments and turn them into simple melody notes and gracenotes, so you can learn to play them faster (and better) than any other method!

Being a self-taught piper, you can imagine the pitfalls I have encountered (not to mention bad habits I have picked up along the way). I have found this course very useful and the instruction very informative, thorough and professional. I only wished I had discovered Dojo U much sooner!

Each and every lesson in this course has improved my piping skills ten-fold! The instruction is great and I thank you all for making this education available to us. Looking forward to more.

Dear Aspiring Bagpiper,

What if you could pull up a video on your home computer, office computer, television, or mobile device and learn the art of the Great Highland Bagpipe?

I'm not talking about gimmicks here! I'm talking about the real, objective, flexible tools of musical expression that the great bagpipers of history have used to create some of the world’s most expressive and emotional music of all time.

And, what if you could learn all of these skills in just a few weeks, instead of being stuck in the the infamous “it-takes-7-years-to-make-a-piper” trap? Are you getting excited yet?

Well... You should be!

Because on this page, I'm going to reveal our approach to learning the fingerwork of the bagpipes that will allow you to learn anywhere: in your practice room, in your car, on your ipod® while at the gym --- ANYWHERE!

So, if you have a computer and that strong burning desire to be a piper, then you have what it takes to dive into our super fun, highly eductation, and extremely high-definition video course and come out the other side as a real bagpiper.

Here's some info about our tested and proven approach…

For this course, all you need is the desire to play bagpipes. Whether you’ve played music before or not, whether you know how to “read music” or not - it doesn’t matter! By the time you’re finished with Chapter 1, you’ll see why. Our method simply WORKS, no matter who you are, how old you are, how much you know, etc.

We don't use conventional methods that only sort of get you where you need to go. As a matter of fact - we invented this tutor to solve many of the problems with the traditional methods (much to the chagrin of the establishment, I might add!). Our course focuses on a logical pathway to building a foundation of bagpipe fingerwork, in a way that you can connect with, believe in, and most importantly, that you can do in just a few minutes each session (in other words, you won’t have to slave away at your computer for months to get the hang of this).

You do NOT (I repeat, do NOT) need to be able to sight read! This course teaches you how to play bagpipes, from scratch. We definitely aren’t going to pile on the crazy music theory or extreme sight reading from the get-go. We are going to learn all of the basics, don’t you worry, but it’ll be in a seamless, organic way that gives you the confidence you need to forge on with each and every lesson. Trust me on this one!

No boring book work! Everything is video-based. Whether at home, lazing around the house, or even exercising, you'll benefit from this convenient way to learn. I designed this video program with busy people in mind so you'll find this program to be straight to the point, open ended (i.e. there's a lot of stuff you can do on your own time outside of the video-lessons), and most importantly - FUN. No fluff. No hype. Straight to the point!

Let's get down to it.

Here's a detailed overview of what you can expect to learn in our comprehensive "Bagpipe as an Extension of your Self" tutor video series:

  • 4 Layers of Bagpipe Fingerwork

    We're the only bagpipe tutor we know of that's said - "wait a second, there's a way more logical approach to all of this stuff." Instead of a paint-by-numbers approach, we layer the fundamentals, so each new step simply adds on to what we already know. For example, our tutor uses 4 layers: Basic Melody (we call that "Scale Navigation") and Rhythm, G Gracenotes, a "Supporting Gracenote" layer, and then lastly the "Embellishment" layer.

  • 16 Classic Bagpipe Tunes

    By the end of this tutor (and, actually before the end as well) you're going to come away with a plethora of amazing classic bagpipe tunes that you can play. These tunes (see our list below) are crowd favorites around the world, and can be heard at most pipe band rehearsals too!

  • 200+ Practice Recordings

    Let's face it. Listening is a huge part of learning an instrument. So, what did we do? We recorded every single exercise and melody in this tutor, at a variety of different tempos, for you to practice along with. Also, Andrew put together some high-quality full-tempo versions of all the tunes, on the full pipes for your listening pleasure (and to help engrain the tunes in your head). Download these to any device you wish!

  • No Boring Music Theory! Yuck!

    We're going to come away from this course with all of the real-world theory that we need to know, but we're not going to bombard you with it. You'll actually be playing stuff on the chanter before you even realize you just learned some key theory. You see, when we learn theory in the context we'll actually need it, it's not so bad. As a matter of fact, you'll be proud to know it.

  • Objectives Lists

    Before each lesson, we'll talk through (in the conversational style that makes Dojo courses so popular) the set of objectives we'll need to complete the lesson successfully. As we add more and more layers, the objectives become more complex, but if you learn things in order you'll never feel overwhelmed.

  • Downloadable PDF Companion

    In the computer age, we don't need books any more. Many of us just use our tablets to read things. This tutor comes with an expansive PDF companion that you can download and take notes on. You can even print it, and bind it into your own book if you wish!

  • High-Definition AND Standard Definition Video

    ...so you can watch it on the big screen, on your mobile device, with high speed internet, or low-speed internet. Basically, whatever environment you're in, you'll be able to learn your piping lessons.

  • Prelude Tunes and Simple Melodies

    We strongly believe that you don't need every single embellishment to make bagpipe tunes. And, it's important to play non-bagpipe tunes in the development process as well. You'll find a wide variety of common songs, Christmas carols, and simplified bagpipe tunes throughout the early chapters of the tutor, before you carry on to fully embellished tunes in Chapter 4.

  • Available on Any Device

    You won't be able to download our proprietary videos to your device, but as long as you have an internet connection, you'll be able to access the course from any device. You know, from your phone, to your tablet, to your TV, to.... your spaceship?

  • Our Learn-Tunes-FAST Philosophy

    There's no way, in the fast-paced world we now live in, that we can allow learning the bagpipes to take 7 years! In our tutor, we have you playing basic tunes and melodies by the end of the 7th video (or thereabouts). Let's get playing some music, and let's get there today!
