College of Piping Volume 1 Tutor Book with CDROM  (Beginner Level)
NOW Spiral Bound: The College of Piping Volume 1 Tutor Book with CDROM is the most widely used instruction guide for beginning the bagpipes. This trusted resource has basic pictures and explanatory text that have helped many learn the bagpipes. The book begins with the basics: reading music, playing notes on the practice chanter, and fundamental fingering.  By Lesson 5, you're starting to play part of a tune.  The CDROM has about 16 short video clips and 35+ audio clips to accompany many of the lessons, so beginners can see and hear how exercises and tunes are supposed to be performed. Approximately 60 pages.
Audio tracks can be played on a standard CD player or on the computer. 
To view the video content, you'll need to have QuickTime or download it for free.

You should use it in conjunction with the audio and video files on the enclosed CDROM."
