A parlour goose is a bagpipe that has a practice chanter instead of a pipe chanter the purpose of the parlour goose is to allow the pupil to learn to keep consistent pressure on the bag without having to exert enough pressure to sound a pipe chanter reed(a pipe chanter reed is considerably stronger than a practice chanter reed).

Often a goose is played first with no drones, then with one drone at a time until finally all three drones are in place.

With practice on a goose the student will eventually be able to produce an unwavering tone.
