No previous musical training is necessary. The lessons are so clear and easy to follow that a complete beginner can learn to play a simple tune at first sitting. Then through a specially selected series of folk tunes, beginners are carefully guided through all the basics of playing one step at a time.
Intermediate and advanced players will enjoy exploring the book’s exciting collection of traditional music. There are 83 pieces in all — jigs, reels, hornpipes, fife tunes, slow airs, Highland flings, morris dances and lots more. Each piece is played on the CD by renowned New York tin whistle teacher, Bill Ochs. An advanced ornamentation tutorial is also included.
