Generally, bagpipe students begin learning on a practice chanter, which is aspirated directly by the player blowing into it. Eventually, as one becomes more proficient, one may switch to a practice goose, which is a small air bladder (significantly smaller than that of a full set of pipes) with a single mouthpiece and a single outlet. The goose may or may not come equipped with a chanter; if not, the player supplies their own chanter. Unlike the full bagpipes, the practice goose does not have drones.
