Just in time for the end of the school year and the beginning of many pipers' first years at university and college, professional-class solo piper Elizabeth Sheridan of Oakville, Ontario, provides insights and tips on how to get the most from your post-secondary school experience while keeping your keen interest in the pipes. Practicing, money, time management, scholarships, housing ¨C it's all here, along with insights (in Part 2) from student-pipers in the UK.
