Here is what students say about Jeff:
I have been taking bagpipe lessons with Jeff Anderson for three years and it has been the absolute best thing I’ve ever done for my piping. His attention to detail and knowledge base are second to none. My ability and confidence as a piper has significantly increased because of my time with Jeff. Another thing I really appreciate about him is his encouragement and guidance in preparation for solo competitions and his support on the day of. I would highly recommend Jeff as an instructor to anyone who is serious about becoming a good piper.
