Latest update 14 May '24 6pm

Run by the City of Edinburgh Community Education programme, in this online class you will continue to learn to play the penny whistle in a friendly, fun group. You should have a penny whistle in the key of D, available from any music shop. You will expand on the basics of playing the whistle, and build up a repertoire of tunes

Use the schedule below to find out what we're doing each week, and download music if required. Many of the tunes also have MP3 soundfiles, which can be very useful to listen to to get the idea of the tunes. Any questions, just ask (email me).
