Learn to play the bagpipes even if you have no musical experience, can’t read music, and don’t own bagpipes!

Fun Fact: Walt McGhee got his start playing bagpipes as a student in the original FCAAE bagpipe class!

Using your personal practice "chanter", weekly lessons will focus on:

  • Learning the fingering.
  • Gaining a basic understanding of the musical notes.
  • Playing some tunes.

Class size limited to allow for personalized guidance.
