|Band Playing Level
Grade 4 Band
I began piping 30 years ago, at age 39. I learned first from bandmates, but soon started attending Invermark summer schools. I was (too quickly!?!) moved into leadership positions with my band and we achieved some successes, moving up to Grade 4 in 1998. I have moved a few times with my job and am on my fourth band now, and took a 10-year hiatus from piping. I returned to piping six years ago, and retired recently.
I really enjoy teaching, and have found the Dojo U. resources to be an immense aid, especially as it allows learners to proceed at their own pace. This allows me to make the most of the face-to-face lesson time I have with them.
