EXPERT PIPER

If you are looking for bagpipe or chanter tuition then you have come to the right place.

Learning to play the pipes is no more difficult than learning any other instrument - it requires hard work and dedication. You can start learning from about age 8 or 9.....

Would you like to be able to play in a pipe-band some day? - or become a solo piper either playing in competitions or for your own enjoyment?

Why the Bagpipes?

It's our national instrument and there is no greater sound than to hear the pipes played well either by a solo piper or a well turned-out pipe-band.

Playing the pipes can also open a lot of doors - I have played in over 36 countries - I lost count at that number! - but they include America, Canada, Venezuela, Brazil, Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Dubai, France, Germany, Spain, Russia, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Gambia, Moldova..............
