Personal Description:

I teach the Scottish Highland Pipes in the areas of London, Surrey and NW Kent. I also perform the instrument solo and with pipe bands. I am a qualified school teacher and judo instructor.

You will be able to take a look at my YouTube channel - which has over 700 clips of solo and pipe band performances (concerts, recitals competitions etc.) There are also a few clips of myself, that is when I have been able to get someone else to film for me (at a few Burns Night Dinners, a wedding at Westminster Abbey etc.)

Tutoring Experience:

I have individual piping students, mainly in London and Surrey. I also taught pipes (part-time) at the Gordons School (Patron: H.M. The Queen) from 1999 to 2019.
I taught academic subjects in junior, secondary and special schools for 21 years.
I taught judo in schools and youth clubs over a period of 30 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually teach beginners, using a practice chanter and the College of Piping's Tutor Book, or that of the National Piping Centre. I am always patient and positive, explaining at their level, and encouraging the student at every step. Most pupils make good progress, so long as they are keen and practise regularly. Once the student can play the basic movements and has memorised several tunes, he or she should be ready (dependant on age, ability and enthusiasm) to start on a set of pipes. I will advise on the purchase and can, if required, obtain a set from most manufacturers, with whom I have an account. During the Covid-19 lockdowns, I can offer online tuition using either Skype or Facebook Messenger.
