Up until now any tuition that Warren had, whether it be at school through the Kilmarnock Schools Pipe Band or Kilmarnock Pipe Band, focused on his piping as a band player.  Whereas this funding from the GDMT allowed him to receive tuition that concentrated on him as a solo piper.  The tunes that he was focusing on during this time were solely his choice, which in turn expanded his repertoire and increase his confidence and knowledge as a solo piper.  Without the funding this would not of been possible.

Thank you very much for investing in this young players future.
