Max has a wide range of competitive and performing experience with the Great Highland Bagpipe.
Since his early teenage years he has performed at countless festive occasions such as Wedding Ceremonies, Birthday Celebrations, Graduation Parties, Golf Tournaments and Country Clubs.
Weddings and funerals are classic occasions to call upon a bagpiper, and Max would be a beautiful and worry-free addition to your joyous or solemn day.
But even “less traditional” events warrant a piper’s musical touch! Max is no stranger to surprise parties, engagement parties, large dinner parties in private homes or restaurants, and seasonal holiday parties.
He has been requested to play for large Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and has been a huge hit with Hava Nagila!
Max is also available for tutoring and lessons for the Bagpipes. He has taught absolute beginners as well as intermediate players.
His past pupils have had success in lower level solo and band competitions throughout the Western United States, the Midwest, and the Toronto, Canada circuit.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to play the bagpipes, or have already been playing and want to perfect your musical skill, Max is available for two free lessons and consultation, and can work with individual schedules and needs.

Having played with successful competitive bands from grade 4 through grade 1 (the premier band grade) Max has a wide range of understanding the dynamic of different performance requirements and expectations.
Max caters to all events and situations, and is flexible to your own ideas of performances, whether you know exactly how you want the bagpipes to fit into your event, or if you have very little experience with a professional bagpiper.
