We will be learning on Tin Whistle Key of D, which are available at Donegal Square, 532 Main Street Bethlehem. Walton’s is the recommended brand.
Our Irish whistle workshop, led by Chris Finnegan, will teach the basics of how to play traditional tunes on a D tin whistle to students over age 14. Students will learn the basic fingering and how to get a good sound from the instrument. Simple music will also be introduced.
