Grade 1 bagpiper Jonathan Graham has played since the age of 10, his raw talent gaining him numerous awards as a solo piper. He developed an interest in bagpipes from an early age through hearing his Grandfather play on a regular basis. Jonathan is a piping tutor and has many students in Glasgow, as well as foreign students in Holland, France, Germany and the US which he teaches via Skype. He is a former tutor at the world-renowned National Piping Centre and held the post of Evening Class Coordinator there. He graduated in 2012 with a First Class Honours degree in Scottish Music – Piping at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
He is a successful solo competitive piper and has played in many pipe bands, most recently the prestigious Scottish Power Pipe Band, and has also travelled the world representing Scotland with the National Youth Pipe Band. Aside from the traditional side of piping he participates in many contemporary projects, the main one being the world-famous Red Hot Chilli Pipers, who he travelled to America with recently for a tour. Due to this wealth of experience in all contexts of piping he is often asked to speak to journalists and film crews about Scottish music, history and culture when they visit Scotland.
