I've been teaching the bagpipes for a long time; about 20 years now! During this time I've written a two volume set of playing the pipes. The first volume is for the beginner and the the second is for the advanced student wanting to continue and improve on the various technical aspects involved in playing the Great Highland Bagpipe.
Volume 1 includes a practice chanter template. This is a simple tubular item that has the hole placements beveled at the locations of the "real" chanter. It's a great learning tool in a progressive advancement of one's time and cost investment.
Volume 2 completes the lesson series for the fundamentals of piping.
If interested or need further details I will be glad to talk with you!
