About Susan Planck

Susan Planck Author and Bagpipe ExpertSusan Planck is as unique as the bagpipe. With her background as an elementary, middle, and high school teacher for 30 years, with more than 30 different subjects under her command, she also captivated children and adults as a bagpipe teacher and climbing school instructor for 15 years.

Attaining a lifelong dream of learning how to play the bagpipes shortly before she turned 40, Susan enjoyed sharing the incredible, strange sounds of the bagpipes during her many travels to foreign countries. She found nirvana combining her two loves, traveling and bagpiping.

Moving to Colorado, she joined the City of Denver Bagpipe Band, an award-winning band that competed throughout the United States and Scotland. She quickly learned that bagpiping would change her life in ways never anticipated, including meeting her husband who was the pipe-major of the band.

Susan resides in Boulder with her husband, Andrew. They now spend their time mastering the Swiss alphorn.
