What makes a complete piper?

  • Technique: An accurate technique during finger movements & embellishments without mistakes nor cross over noises
  • Tone: Stability of tone through-out the whole tune & during note changes. This is an important attribute to listen out for & separates the juveniles/novices with the professionals
  • Musicality: Clear concise playing which is musical & pleasurable to the ear
  • Repertoire: A varied repertoire & not just simple slow airs
  • Comfort: Comfortable playing without panic, nor a look of fighting their instrument. Look for a piper who is comfortable playing their instrument & is enjoying it
  • Grading: Pipers are graded from Grade 1 to Grade 4, Grade 1 being the highest level of ability
  • If you are unsure of any of the above, and would like further guidance or advise, please do not hesitate to make contact
