I don’t know how much or if this has been discussed, but I am thinking about my future, and one thing I would really like to do is become a maker of Uillean Pipes and\or Irish flutes and\or bodhrans. I’m only 14 now, but these years of your life go fast (i hear), and I was just wondering if such opportunities exist. I know that you can take lutherie etc. in college, but what about at a maker of uillean pipes in Ireland or something of the sort, where a "master builder" could teach you all his skills?
I hope you could understand that. If you have anything to contribute, feel free.
