School of

trad

The “School of Trad” was launched in 2022 to give bagpipers the opportunity to advance in their play and to work on common session repertoire.

Every month you will get new music pieces, exercises, routines, tips, tricks and much more. Everything is provided in video-format to make sure you achieve the best possible practice results.

The “School of Trad” is meant to connect. All exercises are provided in different levels of difficulty and complexity to make sure everyone can take part regardless of the current skills.

Matthias “Mattis” Branschke is a bagpipe player and instrument maker(www.dudelsackmanufaktur.de). He has many years of experience in teaching bagpipes within Germany and abroad.

His analytical and modular approach to music creates a perfect and stable base on which his students can develop a varied play with strong expression.
