Testimonials

I’ve been taking Skype lessons with Neil Clark for 3 years. With Neil’s expert tuition, I’ve moved from playing basic beginner tunes with limited technical skills to playing more complex tunes including piobaireachd, and I’m considering entering a solo competition next year. With the Skype format, Neil easily hears every note, whether I’m on pipes or the practice chanter; this allows him to give me focussed feedback on what I’m playing well and what needs correcting. I don’t think I would have made nearly as much progress as I have without the advice and assistance I’ve received from Neil

I am writing to you on behalf of both Falkirk District Twinning Association and the Odenwald Association to thank you for your help during the Twinning Anniversary Event. Your contribution to the event was invaluable to its overall success and the the enjoyment of everyone who took part.

Falkirk District Twinning Association

A big thank-you to you and the boys for coming along to play for our National Convention. The setting outside Dynamic Earth was stunning and thankfully the weather was kind to us. Those attending the event cam from all over the UK and British Forces in Germany and Cyprus – so they were delighted at the real Scottish welcome. Well done.

I have used Piper, Neil Clark, on many occasions for funerals, over the years. I have had lots of requests for pipers for funerals, and on many occasions we were disappointed with the quality and appearance, however Neil Does what it says on the tin, he turns up in plenty time, has contacted families if required to go over music and details, and always looks the part. I seldom recommend anyone, however I would have no hesitation to recommend Neil for your day, whether it be funeral or other.
