Tin Whistle FoundationsThe course 'Tin Whistle Foundations' is a continuation from Kirsten's last course 'Whistle Basics'. In it she explores simple tin- whistle embellishments such as the cut, tap, roll and the slide. Emphasis is placed on breathing, phrasing, variation and rhythm throughout the thirteen taught tunes. Jigs, Slides, Reels, Hornpipes, Barndances and an O'Carolan composition are all featured. In the videos, Kirsten teaches each tune slowly, phrase by phrase and recommends that students learn with her this way, by ear. The sheet notation for each tune is also included as a learning supplement for the tutorials. By the end of the course the player will be more comfortable playing ornamentation on the whistle, will have a broader repertoire and a better knowledge or Irish music and will be ready to explore more advanced tunes and tin-whistle techniques.
