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.

William has been my instructor for over the past 13 years. I would never be where I am today if it wasn't for him! He has the patience of a Saint!! Im a bagpiper for the Northwest Firefighters P&D's. William was our original PM and is the reason behind our bands success and lineage of bagpipers. Thank you William and I look forward to many more years of playing with you!!
I have been taking bagpipe lessons with William for the past year. I am visually impaired and he has taught me so much, even though I can’t read music. I was able to learn Amazing Grace and a few other tunes.
William is patient, encouraging and charming to work with. He challenges you in the right ways and I feel has all the right tools to make the learning process as easy as possible. Highly recommend.
