Jenna Dennison began bagpiping in 2003 (learning from Iain MacLeod in the very early stages of the Montréal Piping & Drumming School) and joined the school’s staff as an instructor in 2006. In contrast to her classical piano background, the unique sound of the highland pipes and the social nature of the piping world had her hooked from the start.

Jenna holds a Master’s Degree in music composition from James Madison University (Virginia), and finds inspiration in pushing the boundaries of Scottish folk music. An eclectic musician, she is known online for her YouTube video “Highland Bagpipe Strike-up Tutorial”, and has performed with instruments ranging from pipe organ, to Afro-Brazilian percussion, to theorbo. She currently plays with the Glengarry Pipe Band and the Montréal Pipes & Drums, and has been a member of the Montréal RCMP Pipe Band and the Montréal 78th Fraser Highlanders. Between band and solo performances, she has played in parades, ceremonies, and competitions throughout Canada, the USA and Scotland.
