Home Teaching Tunes Resources Forum Museum Store Contact

Nigel photoI am a professional musician, and have been involved in the performing, teaching, collecting and publishing of Scottish traditional music for thirty years. In 2009 I was nominated as Tutor of the Year in the Scots Traditional Music Awards and I feel I inspire people around the world with an infectious way of transmitting music.

As well as informing people of my teaching activities, this website provides resources for the learning of traditional music, with tunes in various formats, tutorials, articles and downloads. Visiting my on-line store introduces you to the growing catalogue of my books, while the forum allows discussion of music with like-minded enthusiasts.
