    Here’s your bagpiper, look no further!

    We hired Thom for a wedding and for a Military ball. He’s awesome! We had very specific selections for the Ball and it was not a problem at all. We also asked for some particular pieces for the wedding and Thom was very accommodating. He shows up early, no worries at all. Highly recommend!!!

Thom Moore

Thom Moore

Owner, Pipe Major

Thom is a highly trained musician-bagpiper with over 4 decades of experience as a verifiably very successful solo and pipe band competitor on the Great Highland Bagpipe, with hundreds of trophies and medals in his record of competitions sanctioned by the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) and the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario, Canada (PPBSO).

A certified, successful grade 1 solo competitor (grade 5 being the lowest) and former member of more than a dozen competition-level pipe bands, Thom is a sought-after performer and bagpiping instructor for individuals and pipe bands. Thom is the official Bagpipe Instructor to the Camden County (NJ) Emerald Society Pipes & Drums and the Philadelphia Police & Fire Pipes and Drums. He regularly provides workshops and seminars to bands and individual bagpipers in the Baltimore-Wilmington-Philadelphia-New York corridor.

Moving away from a successful executive medical publishing career, Thom decided in 2016 to devote himself full-time to playing and teaching the bagpipe. He established a new business, The Happy Bagpiper LLC, which offers bagpiping performance and instruction services as well as a full range of bagpipes and accessories for sale.
