I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own bagpipes.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Susan played at our wedding and she was absolutely faultless. From the day I enquired about her playing to her helpfulness on the day - I really could not have faulted the service, which made a very stressful time so much easier. She gave helpful guidance on songs and offered advice, knowing what atmosphere we wished to created. She really made our special day so much more special. We are eternally grateful for her skill, kindness and amazing talent.

5th February 2017

I have seen Susan as Musical Director of a number of musical stage productions and been impressed by her dynamic drive and motivational skills of the cast, delivering an excellent performance every time. I have since had the pleasure to work alongside Susan in a Pipe Band and she is a pleasure to work with. I thoroughly commend Susan and her extensive knowledge of Music and musical direction.
