B.Ed. Alumnus Brings Scottish Music to Kingston Youth

February 20, 2019

When John McKay (B.Ed. ‘16) came to Queen’s for his B.Ed. he brought his passion for the bagpipes with him. He also brought a lifelong interest in teaching and learning. These two parts of John’s life intersected in Dr. Jane Chin’s Prof 110 during a show and tell. At the time, John was interested in the Inveraray and District Pipe Band, a competitive pipe band based in Scotland. He shared this for the class activity, sparking a connection that eventually led to an alternative practicum at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow and establishing free programs that bring traditional Scottish pipe band music to any Kingston area youth interested.
