The National Piping Centre Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book for Beginners

Compiled using the extensive experience of staff at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow, the NPC’s superb Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book introduces music theory, the notes of the bagpipe, gracenoting, lots of helpful exercises and some basic repertoire.  It is professionally produced, with clear directions, good exercises, good beginner tunes, and everything demonstrated on video.  The layout is excellent.  It also lends itself very well to self-instruction, though it’s a good idea to see an instructor periodically to make sure you are on the right track!
