Piper in full dress

Welcome. I play the bagpipes, teaching and performing in Central London.

I teach adults and children from beginners through to the higher levels of the Piping & Drumming Qualifications Board's playing certificates. More about my teaching practice, including frequently asked questions, is available on the left.

I am available to perform at all kinds of events, from weddings and funerals to corporate functions and international events. I have many years experience playing at these and I am happy to provide advice if you are just thinking about having a piper, with no obligation.

More information and contact details can be found on the left, plus some resources mainly intended for pipers. Please do get in touch at if I can help in any way.

I'll be playing at the Folk Of The Wood's Burns Night ceilidh on the 16th January. Organised by the fantastic Ceilidh Tree band, this will be a fantastic evening. Bring your dancing shoes!

It's taken a while to get a printer organised, but I can now offer gift vouchers for lessons and performance.

After a dozen years or so, I've finally upgraded the site from static HTML files to something a little easier for me to keep up to date. Hopefully this will lead to me adding more material and updating more frequently.

I have moved a copy of everything that was on the site into a subdirectory called /old/ so if you were looking for, update the URL to be callingthetune/old/foo/bar/
