App Description

+++BELOW WE PROVIDE YOU WITH INFORMATION ON THE CONTENT OF THIS APP AS WELL AS ITS PRIVACY POLICY+++

We would like to thank Fin Moore for trying and reviewing this app. He commented: "Lots of great information with the app about piping. I really like the part where you have to listen to a note and then say which one it is, as I think it will really help folk if they want to learn things by ear."

'Light Music Technique' will teach you the finger technique common to the ‘light music’ repertoire (e.g. marches, strathspeys, reels, hornpipes and jigs) of the Scottish ‘great Highland bagpipe’ or Irish ‘Warpipe’ as well as the Border/Reel and Scottish smallpipes. Whether you are interested in the fingering of an embellishment, its notation or corresponding terminology – this app teaches you all you want to know providing you with intertwined animation, audio and notation examples. Additional texts complement the multimedia material.

Besides transmitting the finger technique itself, this app includes further innovative material. For instance, it extends the scale of the pipes from a nine note (standard scale) to a fourteen note extended scale including the addition of five accidentals. Furthermore, the app introduces you to the important concept of 'beat position'. This innovative approach will enhance your understanding of the music, allowing you to improve your phrasing as it presents you with the rhythmic subtleties of Scottish piping. The beat position of each embellishment is indicated in the notated examples and a metronome, accompanying the audio examples, enhances the learning experience.

Several innovative self-testing games allow you to challenge your listening- and notation-skills as well as your understanding of the pipers terminology. A reference section allows you to browse all of the content of the app by the pipers' terminology. The chanter recordings have been made with a Deger chanter played by Allan MacDonald.
