I started playing bagpipes 20 years ago after playing the drums for many years. I studied under Aaron Shaw of the Wicked Tinkers for 7 years quite extensively. I studied little music, i.e. jigs, reels, hornpipes, marches, etc... as well as Piobaireachd (Pibroch). I have had the pleasure of taking lessons with Bruce Hitchings as well. I'm a natural-born educator, and love to teach piping to brand new students. I like seeing their faces light up that first time they hear the drone of the bagpipe in person, and the excitement when they get to play a tune on their very own set of pipes. I am patient, knowledgable, and possess a solid work ethic. If you have the desire to learn and a commitment to practice, I'll bring the rest.
Performed with the Tinkers (Wicked Tinkers) at school shows as a fill-in drummer and bagpiper.
