I have been playing the bagpipes for 37 years, the last 28 as a full time piper. 15 years with the Victoria Police Pipe Band and 13 years freelance. With the Victoria Police Pipe Band, we won the 1998 Grade 1 World Pipe Band Championships (the highest level), in Glasgow, Scotland. Since 1993, I have been an accredited Piping Judge in Australia with both the Advanced Piping Certificate (Australian Pipe Band Association) and the Adjudicators Certificate (Australian Pipe Band Association). I have also tutored and led bands to a high degree of success relative to their grades. As a tutor I offer a high degree of knowledge and experience and am happy to teach beginners through to those who would like to improve their skills.
