Masters of Scottish Arts - Live in Concert Volume 1

This fabulous new all digital CD was just released in July 2003. It includes beautifully mastered live recordings made during the first three years of the Masters of Scottish Arts concerts held at the Scottish Rite Center and Town Hall. This CD will quickly become a favorite. Produced by Neil Hubbard and Jori Chisholm, it features electrifying solo and ensemble recordings by the faculty of the Winter School. This is a must have CD.

Electric Pipes

New Zealand based piping notation software. This is highly recommended. I use this software personally. It is a joy to use and can be used as an effective aid in learning new tunes. Highly recommended.
