Whistle Along

Whistle Along

Whistle Along is a staff notation (B A G) approach to teaching the tin whistle. It presents a carefully graded selection of well known children’s favourites, Irish, Folk, Classical and Christmas tunes, which makes for easy progress. Song words are included where possible. The CD supports and enhances the learner’s efforts with a satisfying multi-track musical accompaniment.  The DVD allows you to play along with the fingers on the screen.
