Description:
Whistle a While Teacher Pack (Book, Audio CD & DVD) by Julie Ryng

Tin Whistle Tutor

Whistle A While is the tutor for those who prefer to teach tin whistle using the ‘doh re me’ (tonic solfa) approach. The Teacher Pack contains the book, audio CD & DVD. The content is similar to Whistle Along but it has the tonic solfa notes (d, r, m etc) written over the staff notation. It presents a carefully graded selection of well known children’s favourites, Irish, Folk, Classical and Christmas tunes, which makes for easy progress. Song words are included where possible. The cd supports and enhances the learner’s efforts with a satisfying multi-track musical accompaniment. The DVD allows you to play along with the fingers on the screen.

The CD contains all the tunes and backing tracks and on the DVD you can watch the fingers on the screen and play along. The finger work is exaggerated to show the uncovered holes. On the DVD, you will note that the index finger of the lower hand is kept in position for the notes te and lah in some of the tunes. This is a strategy employed by experienced players which does not affect the tone of the notes.
