Hi, I come from a very rich Irish and Scottish background and I wish to learn the pipes. I have recently purchased a Practice Chanter. It would be of great help if you could tell me how long I will be piping before I learn to do it well. I also would like to know any tips you might have for me for beginning and playing the bagpipes.

Thank you very much,

Chris

Like anything else it depends on you. Get a teacher.

Can't play bagpipes without getting a Piping Instructor first!

Would you jump out of an Airplane without going to parachute school first?

I'll say it for the third time: Get a teacher. If you don't know where to find one, just post to this group where you live, and where you would like to find a teacher. I guaranty that you will find one.

How long does it take to become proficient at the pipes? I would honestly say a lifetime. You will constantly raise your own bar, the better you get. In fact, you will never consider yourself so good as when you are about 2 years into it. 10 years later you will realize just how bad you were.

Best of luck.
