Whistleberry Tunes

Whistleberry Tunes will be available from Monday 16th October – join our mailing list and we’ll email you a link to the course!

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.

This course has been designed to motivate children, to encourage them to learn to play by ear, and to support and give confidence to teachers/parents/guardians in the classroom and at home.

What will children learn?
