Get to know the tin whistle with Desy McCabe of famed Irish band Craobh Rua (Crave Roo-ah). Category: Wind & Free Reed
This workshop is aimed at introducing the player to the tin whistle, initially getting comfortable with holding and blowing the whistle. The basic scales of the keys of D and G will be taught and then the player will be introduced to some beginner level tunes to start to their repertoire and enjoyment of the instrument. The tunes selected will be popular Irish slow tunes and songs. Essential care and maintenance of the whistle will also be covered. The D whistle is the most popular whistle played and would be the preferred whistle for the player to bring to the workshop.
