I started learning the bagpipes through Scotch College at the age of 12. I compete professionally in A Grade solos and Grade 1 band competition.
As a former Australian, Victorian and New Zealand Pipe Band Champion, I now teach bagpipes at Scotch College Melbourne, Geelong Grammar School and I teach though Sincockpiping privately.
"My goal is to teach young students so that they can reach a high standard of piping and gain opportunities to play in bands in Victoria, and even travel interstate and overseas to compete with other bands of different levels."
Learning the bagpipes is a great way to meet lots of new people, to network and gain lots of connections, which may lead to great opportunities in the future.
"I enjoy teaching as I am able to pass on what I have learnt over the years to others, and I hope to inspire them to follow their piping to great lengths. It is also encouraging when I get to see my students progress and be motivated to push themselves to succeed."
