Game Changer!

This metronome really has been game changer for me. Over the months that I’ve been using the app, I’ve made measurable improvements to my march and strathspey playing. The pulsing feature allows me to dial in just the right swing so I’m no longer guessing if I’m pointing enough or not. The circular design is easy to follow, and the ability to program sets or medleys with all the breaks and transitions is amazing. If you’re a piper or pipe band drummer, and are serious about improving your playing, you owe it to yourself to get this metronome! I can’t recommend it enough!

Think, pray, love ,

Yay Accessibility!

I went to practice today and was sad when the beta wouldn't open but then I realized that it's because the accessibility changes we made during the beta phase are now live! So I'm really excited to share with other bagpipe students or pipers that either have a little bit of vision or no vision at all that this app now works with VoiceOver on all Apple devices, including my iPad!

Thank you guys for being so responsive and willing to help me make this app even better

Attention Pipers

If you really want to improve your rhythm, and overall expression in all idioms, you won’t be disappointed with Jori’s very well thought out metronome, designed specifically for the Piper. The format is easy to use, and the use of this tool will have you playing “in the groove “, that we expend so much effort searching for.
This app will help you reach the next level of playing, and help in making you a much better help player!
