" When I found out about he Dojo Freedom Intensive course I was immediately on board. I had some reservations about the cost, however once I received the pre-course material and we got going I realised that I was going to get an awful lot out of it.
The course was certainly intensive, it continually pushed you, often out or your comfort zone, however the support from the instructors and other participants was invaluable. Personal instructor feedback is twice a week and we had regular open zoom sessions so we could get answers to any questions, you really are fully immersed.
One big element of the Freedom Intensive is regular playing, both on the practice chanter and pipes, if you make this commitment you will get the most from the course.
Personally I found the regular playing of my pipes and developing my blowing techniques of huge benefit. The manometer, which is supplied with course materials, will become your best friend (and possibly at times worst enemy) and for me was instrumental in developing my blowing and as a result the tone of my pipes.
In addition to the bi-weekly instructor feedback, I had 2 lessons each week with Glenn Brown which were superb. His manner immediately puts you at ease and his attention to detail is second to none. I found this a fantastic element of the course as it is not very often you get the opportunity for regular one to one contact with one of the best pipers in the world.
In summary I really enjoyed the Freedom Intensive course, it has changed my mindset and how I approach my practice, I am also playing my pipes much more because it is enjoyable and not a physical chore.
If you are thinking about it just go for it... I am sure you will not be disappointed."
