"I started playing the bagpipes when I was kid and then stopped for 20 years... these lessons are perfect for me to get back up and playing again. The lessons are done in such detail that it's impossible not to figure it out. I wish these lessons were available 20 years ago I might have never quite."

Lizz Schumer

"Pete is such a patient and encouraging teacher, Our 10 year old has been taking private lessons with Pete and is a member of his online site. He also was able to get us a great deal on a set pf pipes from Scotland."

Michael McLachlan

"I'm a retired cop and always wanted to learn the bagpipes, but it always looked so hard and I never had time. Well, I finally have time and now I'm learning from Pete on his website and from private lessons via FaceTime and couldn't be happier. He breaks everything down so even an old stubborn fart like me can learn."

Learning the bagpipes shouldn't be hard.

 

I love the bagpipes and have always wanted to learn to play.... but where and how to begin. I have been looking at YouTube videos but everything seems daunting and confusing and I have no idea where to start. I have no idea who teaches bagpipes or where I'll find the time to learn. Also, the bagpipes seem so expensive and I'm not sure what would be a good instrument to start with.

The Highland Bagpipe Academy was created to solve all these problems in easy to follow step-by-step bagpipe lessons that show you everything you need to know on your journey to become a bagpiper.

Brian Pack

"Thanks again for setting up the tunes for our band's new MSR set. I'm already benefiting from the lessons."

Jarred Hurley

"I've been taking the online lessons, and they are very helpful. Pete has a great site!."

What's Included In Your Membership

 

20+ Hours of High Quality Video Content ($1,200+ Value)

Private lessons are great, but they are also very expensive and time consuming. On average, private bagpipe lessons cost $60/hr. That's $1 per minute, so the value of over 1,200 minutes of video content would equal at least $1,200, not to mention the time and money you save by not having to travel to and from lessons.

150+ Easy-to-Follow Video Lessons

From purchasing your first practice chanter to tuning a full set of bagpipes. These easy to follow high quality video lessons will help guide the absolute beginner or novice player achieve their full potential in a fraction of the time traditional lessons require. These videos cover all the bagpipe embellishments broken down with proven exercises to allow you to master the embellishment quickly. They also include step-by-step maintenance and tuning video tutorials that demonstrate the techniques needed to set up a bagpipe that sounds good and is easy to play.

30+ Tune Tutorials
