“I’ve seen kids come in here with no self confidence and seen the changes that learning an instrument can bring about. It’s amazing to see what piping can do. Learning a skill, making friendships that will last a lifetime, being part of something.”
A tutor in Govan schools, former World Championships winner and member of the Strathclyde Police Band
“The Preston Lodge Pipe Band has grown quickly from a tentative group of new players into the flourishing figurehead of our school and its community.”
Gavin Clark, Head Teacher
Preston Lodge High School, East Lothian
