Piobaireachd Tuition DVD-Rom
We are pleased to announce the launch of the "Piobaireachd Tutorial" DVD-Rom by P/M Bill Robertson. This is an excellent resource with an e-tutor running through all piobaireachd embellishments complete with video links breaking up each movement and demonstrating how it should be played.
The DVD also provides manuscript and audio lessons for 15 tunes and an authoritative historical story behind each of the tunes. Tunes covered are: McDonald of Kinlochmoidart no 1. The Little Spree. Lament for the Old Sword. Campany’s Lament. Too Long In this Condition. Old Woman’s Lullaby. Alastair Dearg. Catherine’s Lament. Salute to Donald. Massacre of Glencoe. Sir James McDonald of the Isles. Pretty Dirk. Donald of Laggan. Munro’s Salute. Rout of the McPhees.
We believe this to be the best resource of its type available and are proud to be associated with Bill's work. You will find the DVD on our Beginners Publications page by clicking HERE.
Bill was a prize winner in the BBC piobaireachd composition competition, winner of the Highland Brigade Piobaireachd medal and the Piobaireachd Society NZ Gold Medal. He has been a pupil of P/M Hugh Fraser, P/M Willie Ross and P/M Donald McLeod. Bill himself was Pipe Major of The Royal Scots.
In addition we also offer Bill's "115 Piobaireachd Turorial" DVD-Rom. A vast resource that is unsurpassed. You will find the DVD on our Advanced Publications page by clicking HERE.
