I have competed and performed in several continents around the globe and have been coached by the best and most renowned bagpipers in Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. A teacher by trade, I have the tools you need to succeed with this instrument, whether you are just beginning or are an advanced player. We will focus on the fundamental skills needed to make your music a joy to hear! I hold a Master's degree in Education and know what it takes to raise your playing to a higher standard. Message me to see if we could be a good match!
About Anthony M.

Ever since I was 8 years old, I have loved playing the bagpipes. The instrument was not easy at first - and admittedly I wanted to quit taking lessons early on - but by persevering through the initial learning curve I took off with it and my life has honestly never been the same since. My hope is to help ease your transition into learning this difficult, but very rewarding, instrument. Through the years I have played in bands, taught private lessons, and competed as a solo competitor and member of pipe bands. Along the way I have had the privilege of being taught by greats such as Jack Lee, Michael Cusack Jr., Murray Henderson, Alasdair Gillies, Roddy McLeod, Bruce Gandy, and Stuart Liddell. My chief instructor while I was in high school was Michael Cusack, who led me to win several noteworthy competitions at the Grade 1 amateur level, including the Nicol-Brown invitational contest in 2009. I know what it takes to work hard and to get results. I have 4 years work experience as a school teacher and hold a Master's Degree in Education. I am able bring this pedagogical training into teaching the bagpipes: by meeting every student where they are, and giving them the patience and tools they need to succeed. I look forward to hearing from you and the opportunity of allowing me to help you reach your personal bagpiping goals!

Takes the intimidation out of bagpipes! There are not enough good things to say about Anthony as a teacher and bagpipe instructor. He is considerate of a student's piping level and tailors every lesson to reach goals, see visible weekly progression, and ultimately get to the pipes.
