World champion knowledge

The podcast provides insights, tips, strategy and vision for bettering your piping ability from a no nonsense, world champion point of view. Andrew lays out systems that are far from the bagpiping instruction I was exposed to (voodoo and secrecy, folk lore and mystic secret weapons). If you learn his methods, building or rebuilding your knowledge and skill from the ground up (or the bag out) you’ll have an understanding only private lessons with the worlds greatest pipers, over years could provide.

TLDR: I’ve gotten more value out of this than any other piping instruction
