Enter the magical world of Irish music! Learning the tin whistle is an easy and fun way to get started playing the polkas, jigs, reels and songs that are such an important part of Irish culture. In this introductory workshop we will learn all the notes on the whistle which will enable us to play a few tunes just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The tunes will be taught by ear so reading music is not a requirement. We will also take time to explore Irish music in its many forms and what it’s like to play in a session.

Dates and Time
Wednesdays from 4:45–5:30 pm
February 8 & 15, March 1, 8, 15 & 22 (note week off for school vacation)
After our last class on March 22, we will perform a few tunes before the weekly trad session at the ICC.
