My name is Jori Chisholm. I founded BagpipeLessons.com with the hope to inspire anyone  — regardless of your previous experience or where you live in the world — that it is possible to fulfill your dream to play the pipes.

I love finding ways to help people learn faster and more efficiently by combining the best of traditional teaching methods with the latest online tools and resources. I use the most effective learning strategies to create easy-to-understand lessons and a fully-interactive learning experience for you. 

I’ve been teaching one-on-one online lessons since 2003 when webcams and high-speed internet first became available. I remember thinking that internet-based bagpipe instruction would be a huge deal for pipers, especially for those with no opportunities for high-quality local instruction.
I also created the world’s first series of tune and video lessons, which have been downloaded by thousands of pipers around the world, and was featured on the front page of the New York Times in a story about the growth of online music lessons.
My first online 30 Day Practice Challenge was so popular, it inspired me to create the world’s first online piping school, the BagpipeLessons.com Inner Circle Membership, with a huge and growing library of resources on everything related to learning the pipes.

You can start learning from all of my bagpiping and teaching experience right now.

Learning to play the bagpipes should be FUN. You’ll need time to practice. So don’t waste any more time and energy searching the internet for excellent, high-quality lessons from someone with the expertise you can trust.

It’s all right here.

I'm constantly creating courses, and videos so you can focus on learning efficiently.
