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!
About Guthrie B.

Hi everyone, I'm Guthrie! I love music more than anything else; playing, teaching, composing are all my life passions. My styles vary from Irish flute to classical, and sometimes bagpipes on the side! I'm originally from Washington state, but am currently living in Philadelphia. As a teacher, I like to let the student tell me how they like to learn, what kind of music they want to learn to play. I promise you will learn a lot from me, (and me from you!) and have quite a bit of fun on the side!

Always wanted to learn some Irish music, and Guthrie helped me reach my goal of playing a jig within a couple weeks! Super nice guy, can't recommend him enough!

I had forgotten how to play the flute when I started lessons. After a few lessons my fingers started to remember all their old habits! Super patient, definitely recommend!

I taught private lessons to students of all ages and backgrounds in my school system. The majority were in middle school (~13 years old). It was amazing to see young peoples' eyes light up when learning a new joy in life, music is something that everyone should enjoy!
