Launch of Learn

Na Píobairí Uilleann are excited to announce the launch of their new ‘Learn’ series of videos.

This series focuses on the fundamentals of playing the uilleann pipes. It provides students with tips on how best to approach their playing, in order to avoid common pitfalls. The suggestions offered here, when adopted, facilitate ease of playing. It is hoped that teachers and makers of the instrument will also find the series useful. We recommend that you initially view the videos in the sequence listed.

Ideally a student should have access to regular tuition with an experienced piper and teacher. Na Píobairí Uilleann supports pipers and aspiring pipers in locations around the world. If you need any assistance locating a teacher in your locality, please refer to the list of teachers here or email

As the uilleann pipes are a complex instrument, the wide range of resources provided by Na Píobairí Uilleann are invaluable to pipers and pipemakers at all levels of expertise, and we invite pipers, pipemakers and teachers to join the organisation here.

If you have any questions or comments in relation to the series, please email

The series can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Learn’ button located along the main banner of the Na Píobairí Uilleann website or by following this link
