The Power of the Pipes is a true story about starting up a bagpipe band in of all places, Japan.
Author Maud Robertson Ramsay Nomiyama has successfully crossed cultural divides in her personal life, and reminisces in her latest book how her late father “would have been so proud of us marching in a pipe band in Japan.”
Her amazing tale tells how the band was started and the incredible things that happened, such as how she had to invent a method of writing music scores for tenor drummers, and how she then had to invent a method of writing music scores able to be used by snare drummers of nursery school age, “simply because we started a pipe band in Japan, despite tremendous odds.” Examples of this new method of writing drum music have been included.
As it unwinds, her story tells of the wonderful people with whom she came into contact as a result, and why they all listen to the beat of a different drummer. “These people were contacted and asked why they too started to play the pipes. It is their answers that form the backbone of the book.”
