About David

I have played the pipes since I was 8 years old played in world championship winning pipebands and also competed as a solo piper
Public liability insurance of £2 million
Verified profile

I started to play bagpipes at the age of eight, at the age of 16 I joined the Army as a soldier and Regimental Piper. I re-enlisted September 2017 in the 1st Bn Scots Guards and carried out numerous public playing jobs including lone piper and playing for Her Majesty The Queen. 2017 also saw me win the Amateur Solo Piping Title . 2018 I attended the Army School of Highland Bagpipes first completing my class one and then doing a 7 month course to qualify as a Pipe Major (Army Qualification) from this I also received an HND in Music which allows me to Tutor the GHB in schools.
