As usual, let me know what you think and if you have any problems.


In this section we hope to be able to provide a 21st century way of learning new tunes. More effective practice methods,as well as hints, tips and tricks to help make your piping and drumming  experience easier and more enjoyable are available in "Improve Your Drumming or Piping"


The MAP tunes will be presented in various formats (exercises drawn from the tunes themselves), whole tunes and the set played at different tempos to suit members at all stages of competency.


These exercises are played by Colin Greeves who, for anyone who doesn't know him, is not only a top notch piper, but also a music teacher and live performer on many diverse instruments so a big "thanks" to Colin for doing this for us - make sure you utilise these files!
