By Mizzy McCaskill & Dona Gilliam. Beginners of all ages will enjoy learning to play tinwhistle with the step-by-step method found in this book. Familiar folk melodies abound in this comprehensive collection of easy-to-play literature. Carefully sequenced tunes and exercises teach the player to read music notation, and a section is included on Irish ornamentation. Several Irish tunes containing suggested ornamentation present the traditional Irish style of whistle playing. Because of the ease of learning the tinwhistle (also called the pennywhistle) many Irish musicians begin their musical training on the whistle before switching to the flute or uillean pipes. Written for the D tinwhistle.
