The Best Pipers
It was something said off hand by my daughter’s gym teacher that got me thinking about pipers in pipe bands. So here goes:
The best pipers are those who can raise the level of play of the pipers around them.
It is one thing to be a good piper in a band. But the best ones inspire, teach, and spread their experience and knowledge to the pipers playing next to them in the circle—doing what they can to help them play better and make their band better in the process.
