The Highland Bagpipe Tutor Book is "A Step by Step Guide as Taught by the National Piping Centre." Printed in full color and organized clearly, the spiral-bound book is appealing to young beginners and adults. The modern program is detailed and thorough, taking students beyond other introductory tutors. The book contains 50+ exercises, some basic information about starting on the pipes, and 30+ tunes. The CDROM has printable versions of the tunes and exercises, and they can also be played as audio files with a bouncing ball feature that helps students to follow along. The tempo can even be changed to make the exercises more challenging. There are video clips of all 56 exercises–a very helpful feature. Instructors will enjoy the printable pieces and teacher resources, like progress report sheets.
