IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A BIG IMPACT WITH YOUR MARRIAGE PROPOSAL, SAY IT WITH THE MAGIC OF BAGPIPES HERALDING THE MOMENT!

Bagpipes Resume: Since 1998, I've played bagpipes that were hand-turned by Ian McLeod of Edinburgh, Scotland. These sweet pipes render a warmer, better in-tune sound than lesser pipes can provide. I studied the Piobaireachd style of piping. Not only do I play standard piping tunes, but I have also composed my own pieces. I have played for weddings, memorial ceremonies, and special church services throughout the southeastern Pennsylvania region.Trumpet Resume

Trumpet/Horn Resume: I received a Bachelor's of Science in Music Education with a double major in Trumpet and Horn in "F" from West Chester State College in 1977.

After serving in the United States Marine Corps, I worked in Washington D.C. from 1983 through 1986 where I studied under Franz W. Streitwieser, the former soloist for the Salzburg Festival Orchestra in Austria. I also played Eb cornet as a soloist for the renowned New John Philip Sousa Band, as well as performing free-lance work and recording collaborations with the Smithsonian Institution, and performing as a featured artist with numerous area churches.

Arriving in Philadelphia in 1986, I continued my free-lance work with such groups as the Chestnut Street Brass Company, the Philly Pops, and the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra. I have also been a featured artist with the Swarthmore Chorale, the Haddonfield School of Performing Arts, and the concert series Edward Bogusz & Friends in concert presentations of Mozart's Magic Flute and highlights of Wagner's Ring Cycle.
