Lesson Details

Dancing Feet is two-parted reel. As dance tunes, reels demand a reasonably lively tempo, making often complicated technique even more complicated. This simple setting gives an insight into the rhythm and feel of these exciting tunes.

Convention in the tuition of pipes has often been to expect a near perfect mastery of all embellishments before looking at any pieces of music. This is for good reason, well executed embellishments give us control, and with control we are able to be expressive. However, for many the aim is not to win the World Pipe Band Championships in Grade 1, or win a Gold Medal at the major gatherings as a soloist – the aim is simply to have fun. In this series John Mulhearn looks at simplified settings of a number of well known, popular tunes. Through the course of these lessons students will be able to piece together a number of sets of tunes suitable for simple occasions.
