As a learner of both the pipes and trad music in general I have come to the conclusion that many musicians, pipers particulary focus on improving their piping technique but not the music as a whole.

For me, creating music that someone would want to listen or dance to is more important than fitting in every triplet or impressing other pipers. I'm interested in what you all think about this?

For what it's worth, I'm with you Sean. For me it's all about the beauty of the music, and my ability to express that through my piping. At my age, I'll never be a speed demon wonder piper. As long as it gives me pleasure to play, I'll keep learning and trying to improve, but at the end of it all I only play to please myself.
