This class will be held in person at Irish Arts Center.

The whistle has been played in Ireland for more than a thousand years. It is small, inexpensive, and easy to bring along to any gathering! In this introductory course, you will learn all the notes of the scale and how to produce a good sound. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll work on traditional songs including marches, waltzes, polkas, and jigs. Please note that to ensure everyone’s safety, masks will be worn in this class except for when students are seated and playing their instruments. 

Students will need a key of D whistle. For information about instrument rentals and purchases, click here
