Bagpipe Solutions Series Volume 1 Book & CD:  Preliminary Level

If you are really serious about learning to play, the Bagpipe Solutions series of twelve books is unbeatable. The books are far more in depth than any other instruction manual on the market. John Cairns, the author, suggests that if you practice for 60 minutes each day, the goals of the volume can be achieved in 1 month. A progress checklist at the back of the book helps you to record your accomplishments. This series is not recommended for the casual learner. A companion CD is included, so you can hear samples.
