Learning the Uilleann Pipes shouldn't be hard.

I love Irish music and the uilleann pipes and have always wanted to learn to play.... but where and how to begin. I have been looking at YouTube videos but everything seems daunting and confusing and I have no idea where to start. I have no idea who teaches uilleann pipes or where I'll find the time to learn.

The Uilleann Pipe Academy was created to solve all these problems in easy to follow step-by-step lessons that show you everything you need to know on your journey to become an uilleann piper.

Allen Bota

"The Uilleann pipes are very hard to learn and Pete somehow makes them simple. I was playing a set of pipes from Afghanistan and couldn't make a sound. Pete was able to set me up with a set of pipes and now I'm leanring my first reel! Couldn't have done it with out his help."

Vince Johnson

"I have been trying to learn the highland pipes for years, but I'm in a wheel chair so have a hard time playing the pipes. I met Pete at a Gaelic Storm show and recommended I try the Uilleann Pipes. I have now been playing for over a year and look forward to my monthly lesson with Pete every time. I also use his online membership which has been great."

Maggie Murphy

"I have been playing the fiddle for a long time but have fallen in love with the pipes. I live in middle of Montana and wasn't sure how to get started since there aren't any pipers near me. These lessons have been perfect since I can do them from the comfort of my home."

"I was trying to learn the Uilleann pipes from book on Amazon. This is so much easier with videos and Pete answering my crazy questions all the time. Took a lesson about tuning that really helped."
