Description: Continue your tin whistle journey with the Beginners level class. You will learn basic ornaments - and how to add them to tunes - to begin to develop a more traditional tin whistle style, including:
  • Cuts
  • Taps
  • Rolls

  • You'll explore other elements of solid whistle playing like phrasing and breathing strategies to take your music to the next level.

    Who's it for:
    Beginner: You have basic proficiency on your instrument, but have little or no experience playing Irish traditional music or other folk traditions. As a general guideline, students in Beginner classes should be able to:
  • Play a scale in D major
  • Match note names with fingerings on the instrument
  • Understand basic rhythmic durations (whole note, half note, quarter note, and eighth note)
  • Be able to play a simple tune

  • Feel free to reach out if you have questions or would like to submit a video for evaluation of your class level.
