Tutor 3 – in English or German: Piobaireachd



The best way to learn piobaireachd (pronounced ‘pee-broch’) the classical music of the bagpipe. ‘Bagpipe Tutor 3 – Piobaireachd’ is by PP Editor Robert Wallace and follows in sequence from his successful Bagpipe Tutor Books 1 & 2. The book is lie-flat, wire bound.

Like them, the piobaireachd tutor makes full use of multimedia to fully illustrate each lesson. This is accessible via the internet link at www.pipingpress.com (click on tutor images on the home page). High quality sound and video files are free to all purchasers of the book.

The book consists of 20 concise yet comprehensive lessons, and on completion the student will know all the technique needed for the successful delivery of this music – and four complete tunes: the Wee Spree, Clan Campbell’s Gathering, the Boat Tune and Duncan MacRae of Kintail’s Lament.

The book is structured in such a way that each piece of new technique is incorporated in the tune that follows, thus putting the movement, be it a throw to E or F, or perhaps the crunluath, into its relevant musical context.

There is also a short introduction to canntaireachd (mouth music), plus information on tune construction, pentatonic scales and piping history.

‘You have great ability to present the heart of a matter in a well organized, clear style. The comments….. are both instructive and inspiring,’….Elizabeth Anne Muckle, Calgary.
‘For a piper looking to begin the piobaireachd journey, this tutor is an ideal jumping-off point. You will be well grounded and ready to perform with a strong basic understanding of the great music…..’, EUSPBA’s ‘Voice’ magazine.
‘I received the 3 books today; wrapped very well, and in perfect condition.  These are the finest tutor books I have seen. I want to thank you for writing these books, as they will become my “go to” books for touching up, and re-training myself. I started on the first page of the piobaireachd book, and slowly practiced practicing the Dre and the Edre  ‘I realized I had some sloppy movements on the top hand, so I will keep after this. It’s like starting over from scratch again, but sometimes this is necessary to correct bad habits picked up along the way.’….Bill Ray
