Private Instruction

Private Instruction: I have been teaching the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipe, the Irish Uilleann pipes, and Irish flute and other instruments for over 20 years. Because I have studied and play instruments and music from various Celtic lands (Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, Brittany, and Galicia) students learn their chosen instrument in the broader context of Celtic music. My extensive study of history, linguistics, and anthropology allows students to feel that they are, in studying their instrument, gaining a window on Celtic culture and ultimately our shared Indo-European heritage.

Music Camps: I have taught at the Lark in the Morning Summer camp, the California Traditional Music Society’s Summer Solstice Music Festival, and the Claremont Folk Music Festival.
