He plans to circulate among the local student population to encourage the kids to pursue their heart’s desires be it music, drama or any other dream.
Sean played bagpipes at the September 11 memorial in 2018. He surprised and resonated with everyone at the solemn event with his bagpipe skills.
Sean is the son of Nelda and Scott Barber of Lake Los Angeles. A life-time resident of Lake Los Angeles, Sean was a student at Vista San Gabriel Elementary School, Challenger Middle School and a graduate of Littlerock High School.
Sean started playing the bagpipes for his Senior Project at Littlerock at the age of 17 years. His teacher was his Grandfather, John Massie who was a Master Piper born in Scotland.
Sean currently works for Palmdale School District while pursuing his education to become a fully credentialed teacher.
Sean has played the bagpipes for 14 years now and participates in solo bagpipe competitions. The scoring during bagpipe competitions is fiercely complicated. He is requested by several Southern California organizations to play for events. He also plays for private events such as weddings, funerals, parties, etc. Sean can be reached at 661-674-7275.
