Sample of Track “Edelweiss” from Whistle Along
Whistle Along is a staff notation (B A G) approach to teaching the tin whistle. It presents 33 well known folk, Irish, children’s favourites and classical pieces, which makes for easy progress. Song words are included where possible. The DVD allows you to play along with the fingers on the screen.
