Tin Whistle - 18 Hours of Phrase-by-Phrase Tune Classes

Eighteen .MP3 format audio recordings and PDF notation files from the one-hour weekly tin whistle tune teaching classes I host every Thursday on Zoom for newer tin whistle players.

Three of the lessons, for the "Ballydesmond Polkas #2 and #3", "Brosna / Star Above the Garter", and "Hector the Hero", also include the .MP4 video recording from the Zoom lesson along with the .MP3 audio recording.

These lessons are for those players who already play the tin whistle, but are looking to expand their repertoire and use of ornamentation and variation.

In each class I teach the tune phrase-by-phrase from the included notation, and then discuss ideas for ornamentation and variation. 

Since I do make reference to the notation in the lessons, they are probably best suited for those players who are able to read standard music notation.

The tunes taught are:


The Fermoy Lasses

The Musical Priest

Over the Moor to Maggie


Banish Misfortune

The Kesh

Out on the Ocean

The Sporting Pitchfork / The Rambling Pitchfork


The Fairies' Hornpipe

Harvest Home

Off to California

Slip Jigs:

The Butterfly

Comb Your Hair and Curl It / The Boys of Ballisodare


Ballydesmond #2 / Ballydesmond #3 (includes lesson video)


Brosna / The Star Above the Garter (includes lesson video)


Hector the Hero (includes lesson video and backup .MP3 tracks in G, D, and G/D)


Sí Beag Sí Mór


34 Variations on the First Six Notes of Jimmy Ward's Jig

  • You will receive 18 approximately one-hour .mp3 audio recordings of my tune lessons, three one-hour video lessons, and the PDF files of the notation for each tune taught.
