Description
All the tools the beginner, novice, and intermediate tin whistle player needs in order to progress to a high level of competence in Irish music playing. Includes an "Orientation to Traditional Irish Music", which puts the music in context, with information on scales and modes, dance tune types, the historical roots of whistle playing, and advice for learning by ear.

The book is full of thorough instruction, exercises, and musical examples: from holding, fingering, breathing, and blowing, on up to advanced ornamentation, phrasing, and variations. Features a simple and penetrating new approach to understanding and notating ornamentation that goes beyond any previous method.

Also includes history and theory of traditional Irish tin whistle music. For those who don't read music, almost all the exercises and examples are available as online audio.
