Course Code – WH1
The beginner Whistle class is designed to be as much of an “instant tin whistle class as possible”.
You will need your own Tin Whistle, make sure it’s in the key of D.
After a short introduction to the basics of the whistle the aim of the class is to learn a new tune every week. The technique we use is usually by ear and tablature (diagrams) so prior musical knowledge is not needed although sheet music will be given as an optional reference. Throughout the term we will begin to work on making the music more interesting by playing together, adding harmonies and ornamentation. It’s a great way to start from scratch or tidy up your playing if you are self taught.

Whistle was so popular during Lockdown we needed another class for those who were no longer beginners. This is where you want to be if you can whistle a tune but you’re not ready for the more experienced class.
