This workshop will introduce new players to whistle techniques and perhaps learn a simple tune or 2. We will use tin/penny whistles in the key of D, the commonly used whistle in Irish music. Previous playing experience is not a prerequisite. We will attempt to accommodate various ability levels. Whistles will be available for loan/purchase for those who don’t already have one. (10$ to purchase).
