I started learning the Scottish Highland Bagpipe in 2001, primarily learning on my own. [I do not recommend this!] In 2005, I started taking lessons from Jamie Fish of Banner Elk, NC and this is from whom I unlearned bad habits and really started "playing" the bagpipe.
I currently take lessons from Andrea Jones.
I compete in EUSPBA bagpipe competitions, and have placed in 2/4 March and Piobaireachd competition.
