    He did not waste any time. His lesson was concise and easy to understand. After the lesson he emailed me a follow up video, reviewing what we had gone over. This helped provide quick reference during my practice sessions.

    Michael is a fantastic teacher for anyone wanting to learn the bagpipe. I have been a student of his for several months and could not be happier.

  • Victor Huff

    Michael is a great teacher, but also he is a great guy. Even though we live 1200 miles away, over the past two years we have grown a friendship through lessons. Michael is doing what he loves and that is evident. He goes above and beyond for an online teacher. I would recommend Michael to anyone for their bagpipe interest.
