Age: 22
Instrument: Bagpipes
Make: Henderson's (1920) & Naill chanter
Grade: 1
Teacher: PM W.J. MacLeod of Pine Falls, MB and Alan Bevan of Abbostford, BC
Band: Robert Malcolm Memorial Pipe Band (grade 2)
I nominated Myles

    Myles is 22 years old and is a grade one amateur player.  He has been playing for about the past 11 years, starting in Manitoba.  He started playing out of general interest in the pipes and was the only member of his family to play up until his brother started playing around a year and half ago.
    Before joining the Robert Malcolm Memorial Grade 2 Pipe Band, Myles played with the Lord Selkirk Boy Scout Pipe Band from Winnipeg, Manitoba and the St. Andrew's Society of Winneped Pipe Band.

    Some of Myle's accomplishments in piping include leading the Lord Selkirk Boy Scout Pipe Band as Pipe Major into the Juvenile competition at the 2000 World Pipe Band Championships.  Some solo accomplishments of his include winning the grade one aggregate for the 2003/2004 BC Piper's Associatin mini-gatherings, and many top 3 placings in grade one at games from Manitoba to BC to Washington state.  Myles is also an instructor for the Rober Malcolm Memorial Grade 5 Pipe Band.
    Myle's plans to turn pro and play with a grade one pipe band in the future.
    He also has a website: http://www.mts.net/~parisian
