Carol Thompkins took over as pipe major of the Montana Highlanders in August 2002. Carol has had extensive training in music and has studied classical piano all of her life. She has worked with various ensembles and she welcomed the chance to work with the pipe band.
Carol maintains an active piano studio in Bigfork Montana and is a State and Nationally certified music teacher through MTNA. She has had students winning top honors in various Festivals and Competitions throughout the northwest.
Bagpiping is her alter ego and happened as a mid life crisis. After
years of performing classical music both solo and with ensembles, she
decided to take up the pipes, and hasnít put them down since.
