I can answer general questions about the Great Highland Bagpipe and the Spanish Gaita, how to go about learning to play the pipes, basic pipe maintanence and can point you in the right direction to almost any question you can think of. My main interest is piping influence in rock and roll and alternative music.
I have been playing the Great Highland Bagpipe for almost 3 years and have recently starting learning to play the Gaita. I am a member of a Northern California pipe band.
I have a bacherlor's degree in Psychology and Master's coursework in Social Work. I am currently studying piping music and music theory with a private tutor.
