"Seumas Coyne is a man of great passion, as witnessed regularly by his students. Legends of yesteryear surround Seumas, from throwing metronomes across the room to throwing pipers across the circle. He has chilled out in his golden years, but is no less passionate about piping. He is an excellent teacher with great knowledge, especially of piobaireachd. If you have ever wanted to be kissed platonically by a man, this is the instructor for you. What else can be said? Seumas can't be explained. He must be experienced."
