Want to become a confident player of the Irish (Tin) Whistle?
The Irish Whistle is a traditional instrument of Ireland, used to play dance tunes such as jigs, reels, hornpipes and the slow airs.
One Aspect that Changes Everything….
An almost universal problem with Whistle Players is the tendency to play in a state of stress, searching for the next note, and disconnected from the beat and the breath. The foundation of these lessons is a simple and effective process to reconnect you to;
Your Body / movement.
It’s the difference to playing in your Head, with a stiff body, and playing in your heart / presence, as a full-body experience! Once You are “In the Zone”, you will be surprised how easy the rest of the learning becomes, AND how quickly your playing improves!
