How To Play Bagpipe Method With Tunes and CD How To Play Bagpipe Method With Tune with CD is a great addition to our "How To" series. This incredibly popular guide provides the basic knowledge needed to become a masterful bagpiper. Our unique approach includes instructions, diagrams & sketches detailing basic music theory, finger positions, grace notes, doublings and other items essential to the fundamental understanding of the bagpipe. This edition of How to Play the Bagpipe Method & Tune book now includes an instructional performance CD. This "award winning" method begins by providing a general understanding of basic music theory, knowledge that is not only applicable to the bagpipe, but is universal regardless of the instrument you may study. Once you have developed a musical vocabulary, you will learn to play the practice chanter, which concentrates on learning the fingerings before attempting to incorporate breathing techniques and the handling of the full set of pipes. Next you will learn to play five or six simple tunes on the chanter. Once you have mastered these pieces, you may advance to playing the bagpipe itself. Then you'll get to hear one of the greatest pipers today. Although his modesty and contractual obligations have required us to keep him anonymous, we can tell you that his credits include contributions to the movie soundtracks of "The Titanic", Braveheart" and so many other modern day films. This incredible piper is the first on call in Hollywood for any production. So sit back, listen, learn and enjoy at your own pace.

Davy Spillane Uilleann Pipe Tutor Very few musical instruments in the world enjoy so much praise for their beauty, myth and extraordinary sound as the uilleann pipes. Evolving through centuries of war, fostered by the gentry, banned by foreign forces and at stages becoming virtually extinct Pipes are still one of the most amazing pieces of musical machinery ever invented or designed. In this book, we don't try to take away any of this beauty or myth, but we do attempt to lessen the opinion that they are one of the most difficult instruments to learn. In its most basic form, we explain simple piping designed for the absolute beginner moving step by step through the problems the newcomer will experience.

Designed for the complete beginner, here is a comprehensive tutor from one of Ireland's best known and most innovative pipe players. With a book full of history, photos and music, Spillane makes this challenging instrument a joy to learn. Davy Spillane's instinctive feel, love and understanding of the uilleann pipes and traditional music forms places him apart as a musician. In this book he dispells the myth that they are one of the most difficult instruments to learn.
