App Store Description
You want to know how to start leaning how to play the bagpipes in the simplest way imaginable? Or you are a musician who wants to simply know the bagpipe scale and how it relates to your own instrument?
'Bagpipe Basics' teaches you the fundamentals of the Scottish great Highland bagpipe, Irish Warpipe or ‘píob mhòr’ (Gaelic pronunciation included in the app).
You will learn its fingering, basic notation and how to play the scale. Chanter animations in combination with the stave as well as the terminology used by pipers will guide you from one melody note to the next.
Furthermore, two games allow you to challenge what you have learned: You can train your ear with the listening-skills tool and quiz yourself on the finger positions of the bagpipe chanter with reference to their notation. In this way it focuses on the music with the minimum of language input in an entertaining and highly efficient manner.
'Bagpipe Basics' was compiled by the pipers Allan MacDonald of Glenuig (Scotland) and Thomas Zöller (Germany). You can contact the authors directly via email through the app.

* Animation of the scale (Beginner)
* A quiz on the fingering of the bagpipe chanter (Novice)
* A quiz that trains your listening skills (Novice / Intermediate)
* Basic music theory as well as information on how to hold the bagpipe chanter
