I have played the Highland bagpipes and taught piping for almost 30 years. I lived in Glasgow, Scotland, where I studied piping & fiddling. I am the founder & pipe major of Tucson Highlanders LLC. I am a Tucson Musician Museum Inductee. I love to teach the pipes! I am also a Fiddle teacher and love to play various styles with a guitarist, I play Celtic music and tangos, especially love Mexican, South American, Cape Breton, and Gypsy styles. I also fiddle around with writing fiction, small dogs that have become a part of my life, my faith journey, and the study of languages. I have taught students with autism, blindness.

I have never had such a wonderful instructor! He is very wise and kind.
I am a beginner; I'll leave it at that.
My first lesson with William was fantastic and relieving. For a person who has no musical background, I was very nervous coming into these lessons, I even had practice equipment that was sub-par. However, William was extremely patient with me, helped me to operate the sub-par equipment, and directed me to getting decent equipment. His calm nature and patience put me at great ease and I actually felt more confident in pursuing my desire to play the pipes.
