The University of Regina has been an amazing partner in the re-location of Sound Advice to their campus. Each year, they provide outstanding facilities and service at reasonable rates. Jim McGillivray's excellent service pipetunes.ca has been a school sponsor since 2008, assisting with music packages for the pipers. Jim's amazing web site has legal, downloadable pipe music that fairly compensates the composers, as well as free music downloads, piobaireachd manuscripts and other background information.
