Piper in full dress

Welcome. I have been playing the bagpipes since 1992 and offer online lessons throughout the world.

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 through the menu, and I can be contacted at calum@callingthetune.co.uk.

I am also 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 in the menu, plus some resources mainly intended for pipers and learners. Please do get in touch at calum@callingthetune.co.uk if I can help in any way. I’m always happy to answer questions and respond to comments with no obligation.



It is...very beautiful to watch or hear someone struggle to play, no matter what stage of performance they attain, as in that struggle lies a proof of their love of that music and a willingness to let the listeners see or hear that struggle. This can only merit appreciation. — Tommy Peoples
