Scottish Smallpipes 2

For smallpipers with some experience and confident in basic fingering and simple tunes. We will look at the finer points of technique and phrasing and also introduce some more complex tunes, particularly those that are commonly played at sessions. We will also explore the use of harmonies to enhance tunes, and consider the possibilities for playing with other instruments, looking at basic knowledge of keys in which smallpipes can play. You should have a set of smallpipes in A.
