GFW Improvers Whistle

I teach an adult evening class in Improvers Whistle with the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop. You should know the basics of the whistle, and have been playing for at least six to eight months.

During the course we'll be learning the techniques involved in playing the whistle, building up a repertoire of tunes, and learning about whistle music from around the world.

Below is the schedule for the course up to this time. If you have any further questions, please ask (email me).
