Top Class Bagpipe Tuition

I have been a tutoring at the highly regarded RNZPBA Summer School in Christchurch since 2009 and am lead pipe tutor for the Central North Island Youth Band.  In addition I have tutored at the world renowned Piping Hot Summer Drummer School in Canada for the past 4 years.

I am involved locally with the Wellington Hawkes Bay Centre education program,and of course, with teaching privately, face to face and via Skype with students across New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Japan.


One on One Lessons 

This can be one on one in my home, or digitally via Skype / Messenger App.

Skype / Messenger lessons are exceptionally productive and of course you can receive tuition directly to you wherever you are!

In all cases you receive all materials from me (exercises, tunes, videos, recordings) plus follow up emails to each lesson. All individually tailored for you.  Spaces are limited but please feel free to enquire.

Band Sessions

I also offer a variety of Group / Pipe Band sessions and workshops,  offering wide ranging assistance with Medley Construction, Ensemble, MSR playing, Sound set up and more.


Whether you are an absolute beginner, are wanting assistance with your solo material as you move through the grades, or just wanting to improve your playing, please get in touch.

Band tuition enquiries are more than welcome. I am very happy to discuss your needs and requirements.
