Due to John’s achievements at the highest levels of piping (as a teacher, solo player, Piobaireachd player and as the Pipe Major of the Peel Regional Police Pipe Band), he is a unique resource and is constantly in demand for workshops, seminars and clinics.

If you are thinking about hiring John to teach a piping or pipe band workshop, seminar or clinic (at your event, or specifically for your pipe band), you will be able to craft (with John’s assistance) a program that meets your specific needs.

His level of expertise allows him to teach basically any related subject matter, which will give you the latitude to offer subjects that meet the needs of any and all of the students attending.

You will find in the Related Pages area (on the right of this page) options for workshops, seminars or clinics.

When hiring John to teach at a workshop, seminar or clinic, you may also want to hire him to perform a recital.

The length of the workshop, seminar or clinic would need to be negotiated with John directly, as he has two fee schedules:

  • One for each day that he travels, and
  • One for each day that he is teaching.

If you are interested in having John come to your location to teach a workshop, seminar or clinic, please contact John at
