Robert R. Pinkman – Bagpipe Tuition Close-Up DVD & Virtual Tutor Book
Mar 09 2014
Everything you need to know and everything you need to play properly is explained and demonstrated in these two dvd’s. All the fingering techniques and movements are shown to you in close up detail and played very slowly for easy understanding. The notation of how all these movements are written are explained in detail and I then play them for you to hear how they should sound.
Bobby has been a pipe major of several pipe bands with varying degrees of success and developed a tuition program that should be totally fool proof.
There are no “grey areas” in his teaching method. Everything is laid out for you to see with close up videos of his hands on the practice chanter, showing you exactly what to do and what not to do. All the little traps you can fall into, all the bad habits that can develope without realising it and what to watch out for.
The virtual tutor book DVD takes you step by step through all the exercises and movements needed to play properly with full colour illustrations, audio explanations and demonstrations. The notation is explained in detail but not dwelt upon because, Bobby believes that the reading and understanding of the music should be a progression as you progress with learning your technique. All of this tuition material is backed up with the close up video DVD.
The soft yet broad Scottish accent makes the learning experience more enjoyable because if you ever had any doubts about who he was or where he came from are quickly dispelled as he takes you on the mystical journey of piping, with great authority, knowledge and enthusiasm.
This is probably the best tuition available on the internet today although, there are a few impersonators trying to copy Bobby’s system but are failing miserably because they neither have the experience, the knowledge or the playing ability.
You cannot get a better bagpipe tuition system anywhere.
