My name is Derek Young, and I play guitar and bagpipes. I'm available for performances, lessons, or instrument service and repairs in the Central Texas area.

If you want to learn how to play, I offer instruction from beginner to intermediate level on both bagpipes and guitar. I can also help you with instrument maintenance and setup. Anything from restringing your guitar or tying in a new pipe bag to adjusting the action, making repairs, or full restoration.


Thanks for visiting, and please contact me if I can be of any service.
