Have you ever wanted to learn to play the lively jigs of Irish music or the haunting slow airs? I can teach you to learn the basics of this amazing instrument and move you on to special techniques in breath control and articulation. Irish/Celtic music is one of my favorite styles of music, but the pennywhistle can also play other well know tunes. Lessons will aim to give the student the musical foundation and tools they need to explore this amazing instrument. Focus on many style of music and an aim to work toward playing the student's favorites songs will be a primary goal in addition to having a lot of fun! :)

Irish, Scottish, British, Celtic, Breton. ¡Hablo Español! I Teach All Ages, at All Levels! I toured Europe for three years in the late 1970s with the folk group 'Dalriada' - I played authentic Irish music with Irish musicians. I intimately know, understand (and will teach you) the real Irish feel! I have been a professional musician all my adult life, teaching thousands of students over a span of more than three decades! I use the Zoom app for live interactive lessons from the comfort of your home. You certainly have many options available regarding choosing an instructor, but I have to assume that you would like to hire the most qualified teacher to guide you on the journey through the wonderful world of music. Everyone moves further, much faster, and is more likely to stay engaged by learning from a master teacher with decades of real-world professional experience to share. I will give you what you need to know, in order to take you where you want to go!

I learned to play traditional Irish music during my guitar studies at UCF. I also learned to play bodhran and tin whistle, both of which I"m happy to teach to the novice player.

Often looked at as an instrument for children, the tin whistle is actually a wonderful fun instrument to play! Whether a jig, reel, hornpipe or slow-air, the tin whistle fits into any Celtic ensemble! I can teach you the basics, and when you're ready we can learn more complex tunes and traditional Irish ornamentation as well!

Tin Whistle: The tin whistle, also called the penny whistle or pemperin English flageolet, Scottish penny whistle, tin flageolet, Irish whistle, Belfast Hornpipe, feadóg stáin and Clarke London Flageole, is a simple, six-holed woodwind instrument. It is a type of fipple flute, putting it in the same class as the recorder, Native American flute, and other woodwind instruments that meet such criteria. A tin whistle player is called a tin whistler or simply a whistler. The tin whistle is closely associated with Celtic music. Let me help you learn the basics of breathing, notes, rhythms, songs and improvisation.
