I wish to thank Oregon Pipers Society for this opportunity. I have found that I enjoy piping for adventure. While sailing or hiking. Most of all to support athletes of endurance events, such as Worlds Toughest Mudder. A 24 hour military style obstacle course race, where top athletes put in 90 plus miles. I pipe for 24hrs and put in 15-20 miles for these events.
During these events I have experienced many equipment failures. Being a relatively new piper, little things are big things to me. I would like to learn how to fine tune reeds, chanters, & drones to improve the sound. Most band practices don't have enough time to dedicate to the depth which I desire.
I'm looking for an instructor who understands piping for an extended amount of time, and in extreme weather conditions.
