"Patience, approachability, expertise and caring are all the essence of Tim's character as a piping instructor. He demonstrates a true teacher's hand in helping his students understand the music at the most fundamental level. During my time as Tim's student, he never hesitated to take time to help me through difficult portions or techniques. I highly recommend Wiley Bagpipe Services to both the green beginner as well as the more experienced piper. Invest the time with a proven teacher to take your craft to the next level!"

"Tim is a great teacher and has a great passion for what he does. He brings the best out of you and he wants you to understand what you are doing. He is friendly, easy to get along with, and has an outstanding knowledge level. I would recommend Tim to anyone. "

"Tim is an excellent teacher. He genuinely cares about his students achieving their goals in piping. His patience creates a friendly atmosphere for the beginner student. He is organized in his planned approach to instruction and is always willing to spend the required time to assist students in learning new techniques and working through any difficult areas. I would recommend Tim as an instructor without hesitation."

"Tim took me from a beginning student to a competent and confident pipe band member. He kept me interested in the instrument when school and work tried to pull my interests in other directions. When I finally had to move to another part of the country for my work, he made sure I had the technique and knowledge that would allow me to continue playing with bands of various levels. I've played in three different pipe bands since studying with Tim. Most recently I competed at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland placing fourth with my current band in grade 4A. All the learning and experience I have gained are built on strong and precise training from Tim."

"Tim has been by instructor for the past 5 years, and I can't recommend him highly enough. He is very patient with beginning mistakes and is very encouraging to more advanced students. He makes me feel like I can master this instrument!"

"I was an older student with no musical background what so ever, didn't know how to read music, had never played any instrument, not even in high school. Tim has taught me everything from piping to tuning,maintenance, repair,etc if this doesn't show the skill and patients that he demonstrates then i don't know what would. I feel that I continue to learn and improve my piping ability. And while improvement for anyone requires time and dedication from the individual, Tim has been able to successfully guide me through plateaus and bad habits, making me a better piper. Tim started as an awesome instructor, and now is also great friend. "

"Tim is an excellent piping instructor. He remains both passionate and alert to his students' performance, moving the students forward toward meeting their personal goals. His consistent approach in explaining technique makes skill development a combination of learning and performance. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone wanting to learn piping."

"Tim Wiley is a very good and patient instructor. He is involved in all aspects of teaching, from the beginning student to the competition-ready piper and has an excellent grasp the techniques and skills neccessary to advance musically. I would recommend him to any one interested in learning bagpiping"

"I couldn't agree more with the remarks left by others. Our son started taking lessons with Tim at the age of 12. He was very patient and encouraging. Communication between instructor, student, and parents was never a problem. We had to travel an hour one way in order for our son to take lessons from Tim and we can say that it was well worth it. "
