Tin Whistle Basics
This course is aimed at the absolute beginner whistle player. It begins with a series of six free lessons then progresses through to the eleven main subscription lessons. How to hold the instrument, proper hand / finger posture and good basic technique are all important fundaments that will be addressed in the early lessons. There will be a progressive study of scales, articulation and ornamentation with relevant exercises throughout. The 'Whistle Basics' course will equip the beginner whistler with the necessary rudiments to begin a journey down the long and adventurous road of Irish whistle playing. By the end of the course, the learner will have a repertoire of seventeen popular Irish tunes, the ability to play cuts, taps and rolls and a deeper understanding of the Irish music tradition.
