Rachel Thom is the current drumming Intern, having joined SSPDT in August 2018.

I started drumming age 10 when I joined West Lothian School’s Pipe Band under the instruction of David Ross.

I became Leading Drummer in 2011 and we played in the Novice Grade until 2014 when we were crowned Champion of Champions and moved up to Juvenile.  I will sadly be finishing my time with The Westies but very much looking forward to joining Glasgow Police Grade 1 for the coming season.

I am also a Senior Member of The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland.

I recently achieved an Advanced Higher in Music and PDQB SCQF Level 6.

I have been involved in teaching with WLSPB, NYPBOS Camps and D2 Percussion Summer Schools.
