Product Description

First Step to Playing the Great Highland Bagpipe. Learn to Play the Highland Bagpipe with this authentic Scottish Practice Piping Chanter Kit. Please note: Learning to play a bagpipe begins with a practice chanter, not with a set of pipes. This is a complete practice chanter kit, imported from Scotland which contains all you need to get started. A key benefit of this Authentic Piping Kit is that a knowledge of music is not essential, which makes this an ideal gift for anyone. This Beginners Piping Chanter Kit has been specially produced to introduce and give a newcomer to the world of bagpipes the essential basic skills and knowledge necessary to start playing. Everything you need to begin learning the bagpipes: it's all here-- a great practice package for the Highland Bagpipes! The Practice Chanter, specially made for the beginner, is a musical instrument in its own right which when played, produces the same musical notes as those produced on the bagpipes. The Beginners Music Book is an easy to follow Music Book containing twelve well known Scottish tunes such as "Amazing Grace", "The Skye Boat Song" and "Auld Lang Syne" as well as tips on how to look after your chanter. The Easy Guide Playing Chart is a carefully structured and illustrated Chart with basic instruction on holding the Chanter. It demonstrates the correct fingering positions followed by four basic bagpipe music lessons including scale, grace notes, time and duration of musical notes and playing tunes. The Beginners Tutor CD is a full length instructional Audio CD guiding you through the tuition from the Easy Guide Playing Chart as well as featuring all twelve tunes from the Music Book for you to listen to and learn.

I started taking lessons about a month ago and right away my instructor insisted I get a new chanter. This chanter did help me figure out how to play the nine notes and grace note scale but it sounds funny when played along side a better quality chanter. It also has some defects tht my instructor pointed out. The top three holes are not lined up making it difficult to play at times. I have recently replaced it with a Dunbar chanter sold by "Universe of Bagpipes" for a kit price of $99. That $20 extra is worth spending on a quality chanter unlike my self who now spent $178. $79 of which was wasted on the Caledonia chanter kit. Other quality chanters for a fair price are Naill and Gibson plus others.
