What made you learn?
“Cliff found his dad’s old practice chanter when he was six years old. His dad taught him the basics and at the age of eight he treated Cliff to some private lessons. Receiving his first set of bagpipes on his ninth birthday, the bagpipe bug had truly started and as quick as you know it, Cliff was entering the competition field at the age of 12 with the Speedbird Pipe Band. Cliff has never looked back”
