Improvers Whistle Class


photoI teach an adult daytime class in Improvers Whistle, where participants have either done a course in the basics of the penny whistle (I do a beginners course - more details), or have been playing for a while.

Below is the schedule for the course, which is held at St Colm's Church, Dalry Road, Edinburgh (see map). If you have any further questions, please ask (email me). Click on the lesson numbers to see what was covered that day.
