Cadet Pipers Awarded Glengarry Caps 

On December 4, 2020, six MMA cadets were awarded glengarry caps for their achievement in the bagpipe program.  

Glengarry caps are a distinctive, traditional headwear worn predominantly by pipers and soldiers from Scottish Regiments. To obtain these distinctive caps, pipers in MMA’s bagpipe program must have progressed through a series of finger exercises, have a sound understanding of theory in bagpipe music and be able to play two pieces of music before progressing onto the Bagpipes. 

Congratulations to the following cadet pipers:  

  • Christopher Chew 
  • Christopher Dowdy 
  • Matthew Hamilton 
  • Gabriel Kaiser 
  • Zachary Sturgeon 
  • Adam Swenson
