Over the years at Big Whistle Music this tutor book has been one of our best sellers. It maybe the double companion CD, it maybe the thorough content. The sales speak for themselves.

Clare McKenna is a fine whistle player and in this book she has carefully included: fully diagrammed pieces for instant playing, graded scales and exercises – plus tunes that are selected to demonstrate varied techniques and playing styles.

There’s that requisite section on traditional ornamentation in there too and key points that highlight essential aspects to help the whistler progress.

On top of that, there’s a brief history of the instrument and legendary players and over 99 tin whistle tunes to help build your repertoire.

A comprehensive guide to playing the Irish tin whistle, from your first notes to advanced solos and ornamentation, written by Clare McKenna, one of Ireland’s leading whistle players and teachers.
