My 3rd lesson with Sarah today as an adult flute student returning to play after a long hiatus: Truly incredible! Sarah is very attentive to my focus on improving tone, breathing, embouchure & more. Today we also played a couple duets which helped me with sight reading. Molly

Tin Whistle:
The tin whistle, also called the penny whistle or pemperin English flageolet, Scottish penny whistle, tin flageolet, Irish whistle, Belfast Hornpipe, feadóg stáin and Clarke London Flageole, is a simple, six-holed woodwind instrument. It is a type of fipple flute, putting it in the same class as the recorder, Native American flute, and other woodwind instruments that meet such criteria. A tin whistle player is called a tin whistler or simply a whistler. The tin whistle is closely associated with Celtic music. Let me help you learn the basics of breathing, notes, rhythms, songs and improvisation.

My son had a great first lesson with Karen and is excited to learn to tune his hammered dulcimer and begin playing. Karen has a natural gift as a teacher and great demeanor. Our family is looking forward to working with her in the future.

I learned to play traditional Irish music during my guitar studies at UCF. I also learned to play bodhran and tin whistle, both of which I"m happy to teach to the novice player.

I have played and taught various pennywhistles since 1992, large bore and small, and in various keys. A student will be required to purchase an inexpensive D pennywhistle ($10-$12), easily available from music stores or from online sources that I can provide. If the student shows interest, we can move on to the Low-D whistle with its haunting Celtic sound, or the mid-range Susato American-made whistle.

Tin whistle is a wonderful instrument, with rich cultural ties to Ireland. I studied abroad in Ireland to learn Irish music. I've had 2 very adept whistle teachers who imparted great technique and great love for the instrument. With tin whistle lessons, I focus on fingering, breath control, ornaments, style, and phrasing. I teach tunes, and encourage students to play along to recordings or with friends.
