Pennywhistle, First Lesson, with Ryan Thomson
Includes both a video DVD and a pennywhistle! $29.95
This first lesson is designed for beginners with little or no
previous experience with pennywhistle playing. No music
reading ability is required. A pennywhistle or "tin whistle"
are different names for the same instrument, and one in
the "key of D" is included at no extra charge.
Ryan patiently teaches a basic scale and several celtic
tunes, including a waltz, hornpipe, reel, march, and polka.
The basics of fingering and breathing are carefully
explained and demonstrated. Tunes are played very slowly
and also up to speed. You'll be having fun learning them in
no time! Tunes include Maiiri's (Mary's) Wedding, Road to
Boston, Boys of Blue Hill, Gentle Maiden Waltz, Egan's (Peg
Ryan's) Polka. 38 minutes. ISBN 978-0-931877-46-9
