Learning classical guitar from an early age, David soon became interested in traditional music, particularly bagpipes in their various forms.
Drawn to the spine tingling sound of a pipe band, and having access to his father’s “big” pipes and practice chanter, he has studied pipes for over twenty years. As well as just for the sheer pleasure this included playing with a local grade 4 pipe band, for many years with the SCaT small pipes class and, more recently, playing for the SCaT step dance class.
No matter how well you play, making music should be fun. David is enthusiastic about passing on his knowledge, encouraging improved technique where needed, bringing new tunes and styles but always looking to make the class enjoyable for all the participants.
