Step-by-step instructions: How easy it is to learn how to play the bagpipes
Here’s how to do it in 5 easy steps:
The ultimate bagpipe beginner set for aspiring players
The Bagpipe Beginner Set consists of a Practice Chanter and the best-selling and proven German language textbook by MacEge (with CD) at a super price! The available plastic reeds respond easily and require little air. The Practice Chanter has proven itself in bagpipe lessons in many schools in Scotland and is easy to maintain. The reed holder of the chanter is designed so that the position of the reed can be easily changed. This allows a new reed to be inserted very quickly to tune the chanter exactly.
The Practice Chanter: The ideal instrument for practicing and learning
The Practice Chanter (also Practice Flute for Bagpipe) is a musical instrument with a double reed and is mainly used as a supplement to the Great Highland Bagpipe. It is mainly used for practicing finger exercises and practicing new pieces of music. We offer the chanter made of blackwood (engl. grenadilla) or polypenco in different sizes to this bagpipe learning set. The instrument can be played both sitting and standing. The Practice Chanter is quieter and easier to play than the Great Highland Bagpipe and therefore ideal for practicing at home.
German language textbook for the Scottish bagpipes
The best-selling German textbook for learning the Scottish bagpipes by Reinhold Ege in an expanded new edition is part of this bagpipe beginner set. It includes an introduction to the fingering and features of the bagpipe, the typical ornaments, and exercises for learning to play the Great Highland Bagpipe. The book contains 40 well-known standard Scottish tunes and two new versions of “Scotland the Brave”. An accompanying CD and an appendix with fingering chart, English terms and bibliography are included.
The Deluxe Bag: Safe storage and transport of your bagpipe set
Optionally, you can order the Deluxe Bag to safely store and transport your Practice Chanter and textbook. The bag offers enough space for your instrument, accessories and an A4 textbook. The bag is made of sturdy and durable fabric and has a convenient carrying handle and a sturdy zipper. The lower and upper parts of the Practice Chanter are fastened inside with Velcro. There is a storage bag for the reeds and an additional zippered bag for spare reeds and accessories to your beginner bagpipe set.
