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 circleâ€”doing what they can to help them play better and make their band better in the process.
