Music’s Many Forms

In October, I began bagpipe lessons with a Pipe Major named Geordie. I am learning on a 'practice chanter'. The bagpipes are supposedly the hardest instrument to learn, and have 8 holes to cover while playing the notes. I am only on my second song, but that is considerably far for only being a few months into lessons. I hope to master the bagpipes so that I can travel the world like my teacher. (He has been to Japan twice, Hong Kong, Europe, Australia and more.) There are a lot of opportunities to be had if you can play the bagpipes, and if I decide to join Cadets like my brother, I will have a great start if I join their Pipes & Drums band.
