Gary Guth is an accomplished musician. He started his musical career playing the piano at age 11 and began his bagpipe career in the Helix High School Pipe Band in La Mesa, California more than 40 years ago. He became a choral singer and majored in piano and voice in college. During high school and college he competed in bagpipe competitions sponsored by The Pacific Coast Pipe Band Association, now known as the Western United States Pipe Band Association. He played his way up to the Grade 2 level before he retired from competing to marry and raise a family. Today, Gary is an accomplished full time bagpiper, pianist, and singer.
Gary started Symphony Studios, Inc 20 years ago as an outlet for teaching piano, voice and bagpipes. He has formed 3 pipe bands in the Philadelphia area and his experiences led him to publish his book “Bagpipes For Beginners‘.
Gary believes that the goal of any teaching program is to become accomplished. That is Gary’s goal with each student. He has also published a book of Christmas Carols arranged for bagpipe called “A Piper’s Christmas” as well as “The Bagpipe Hymnal“. He accepts students of all ages and interest levels and is eager to create a new generation of bagpipers by instructing children and teens to play.
