Geraldine Cotter, herself an outstanding performer and teacher of the Irish Tin Whistle has set out to produce a truly complete instruction book, incorporating all important aspects of the instrument.
The book and CD combination offers the advantage of a two—way learning system: students can listen to examples of techniques which may appear difficult on paper. Examples are played slowly, allowing the student to build up sufficient skills to eventually play at actual speed.
Geraldine's own research has brought her into the homes of many of the legendary whistle players such as Micho Russell and many others.
The student is guided through all forms of traditional Irish music with its typical variations, ornaments etc.
An appendix of no less than 100 tunes, consisting of Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes, Set Dances, Slow Airs and other pieces will give the user an important first source of repertoire, while these same tunes will be welcomed by already accomplished players, as many are here in print for r the first time and others are unusual versions.
A tin whistle in D-tuning is the required instrument to be used with this tutor.
