One thought on “Bagpipe Tuition & Lessons

  1. Just started playing pipes again after many years away and fortunately i got in contact with Dr Mackenzie. What could have been a daunting experience has turned out to be a real inspiration for playing the pipes and for my appreciation of pipe music. Through his patient encouragement i’m feeling confident i can master this amazing musical instrument.
