Previous Experience

I have played with various bands ranging from Novice Juvenile up to grade 2.  Up until last year I competed at the majority of the Scottish Highland games, winning many prizes.  Now I concentrate on teaching the pipes to youngsters.  I teach the Bagpipes at Madras College, St Andrews and also give private lessons.  Contact me if you are interested in learning how to play the bagpipes.

I have also played at many weddings, funerals, parties, Burns suppers, Scottish nights and even birthday party surprises.

Some more of my experiences include playing with the young Fife Road show under the management of Sheena Wellington (Famous Scottish folk singer and also was Head of the Fife Council Arts Department);  playing at Falkland Palace and many other similar places including  slots on Wave 102 radio and as mentioned before the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.  Also I have recently played alongside Billy Anderson ( a local, well known accordionist and DJ ).

I also regularly take part in charity events including the Marie Currie charity parade in Edinburgh alongside nine hundred and ninety nine other pipers and drummers from all over the world; playing also at the officer's mess in RAF Leuchars for visiting Dignitaries (including Senator Mitchell).

Should your requirements be a mini or full Pipe Band, I can organise this, subject to sufficient notice and availability.
