Tin Whistle I: Introduction
Stuart Jackson, Monday, 6 pm – 7 pm
$145 general / $115 member

The whistle has been played in Ireland for at least 1,000 years. It is small, inexpensive, and easy to bring along to any gathering. In this introduction to the whistle, you will start with how to produce a good sound, and will learn the different notes by playing simple songs. Once you have mastered the basics, we will work on some traditional tunes, including marches, waltzes, polkas, and jigs. Bring a key of D whistle, or purchase one in class for $10.
