A concise yet comprehensive piping tutor book by top piper / teacher Robert Wallace for those who wish to play the great Highland Bagpipe.
The tutor takes the complete beginner through all the instruction and movements necessary to become a top class piper.
Each of the 20 lessons concentrates on a different aspect of bagpipe fingeringwork, with exercises designed to improve dexterity and to develop technique, with suggested metronome timings for their practice.
Each lesson has either a sound or video file to accompany it - so you can actually see or hear how to make the movements, not just read about them.
