Whistleberry Tunes is an online music course created especially for young children (and their accompanying adults) who are taking their first steps into learning how to play the tin-whistle.
In Whistleberry Tunes, children are guided through 9 lessons where they will learn basic techniques as well as a carefully chosen range of traditional and newly composed tunes.
