'SCOTS MUSIC GROUP PIPES & DRUMS'

The Scots Music Group Pipes & Drums was formed in October 2007 and made its debut during the 'Dusshera' Hindu festival along Princes Street, Edinburgh, on 14 October 2007. All the pipers have been playing the bagpipes for 2 years or less. In fact Rab, just started the practice chanter in January 2007 and moved onto the pipes in July!! Well done to all!

I have been employed as a Bagpipe Tutor with 'The Scots Music Group' (see www.scotsmusic.org) for 4 years and tutor a Beginners Chanter Class as well as a bagpipe class. Please refer to the above website for more information on classes.
