Get ready for your fall bagpipe-gasm. Dojo University, the world’s first online piping school, has announced an autumn “semester” lineup with all drones a-blazin’. The instructor list views like the best of piping summer schools smashed together. And all in the “off-season” from the comfort of your ain hame.
The fall and winter months are traditionally the time when we bagpipers brush up and rebuild our skills. But sadly, the piping summer school season is all but over. What to do when you’re needing that piping fix? Dojo University trots out a semester of classes that is about as complete as it gets.
Need to retool? Attend the Technique Development class with one of the greatest Pipe Majors of all time, Robert Mathieson.
Who better to get your MSR playing up to higher level than Willie McCallum, one of the top MSR players in the world? (How many Silver Stars is it now? I’ve lost count.)
Crazy for piobaireachd? Certainly one of the world’s leading authorities on ceol mor, the big music of the Highland bagpipe and current president of the Piobaireachd Society, Dr. Jack Taylor, will take you through the Piobaireachd Society’s Set Tunes for 2013. A course you will surely not want to miss if you’re passionate about your piobaireachd.
Build your piobaireachd repertoire with Donald Lindsay as he continues his piobaireachd course through the fall where you can easily cover a tune a week.
Fresh from bringing the Scotia Glenville Pipe Band to a World Championship in the Novice Juvenile grade, Maureen Conner will share her methods for turning piping beginners of any age into world class bagpipers.
Do you really want to miss this learning lineup? You could attend summer schools for years in a row and still not get instruction of this kind from such renowned sources, all in one place, and all at once. What are you doing this fall?
