Verified profile
I have played the pipes since I was 8 years old played in world championship winning pipebands and also competed as a solo piper

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 Royal Signals Pipes and Drums and carried out numerous public playing jobs. 2017 also saw me win the Amateur Solo Piping Title . 2018 I have attending the Army School of Highland Bagpipes first completing my class one and I am now currently doing a 7 month course to qualify as a Pipe Major (Army Qualification) from this I also get HND in Music and allows me to Tutor the GHB in schools.

David was professional in every way. From his military dress which was immaculate to his piping which was superb. He piped at my dad's funeral and it was everything and more than we could have hoped for. My dad would heave loved it. Thank you so very much for a fantastic job and helping to make my dad's funeral exactly as he would have wanted and deserved. Debbie Atkinson, Whitehaven, Cumbria.
