Summer Penny Whistle Lessons
- Beth Magill is offering penny whistle lessons this summer. She is gentle yet passionate teacher who is able to tap into the music inside every student. Both my boys have taken lessons with her for the past two years and I'm amazed at what she has brought out in them. Below you can find Beth's information about summer lessons. Also, feel free to email me if you would like any other recommendations or information from a student's perspective.
Summer Penny Whistle Lessons, with Beth Magill, is set to begin the first week in June, in Beth's home & via skype. Lessons are $25 - 30 minutes, $35 - 45 minutes & $40 - 60 minutes.
The penny whistle, also known as the tin whistle, is a great starter instrument for kids.
Beginning students will start with the most fundamental techniques: fingering, scale, tempo, octaves and begin with several simple tunes. Intermediate students will learn a variety of songs, jigs, reels, airs and more. The genres of music explored and learned consist mainly of folk, traditional, and Celtic.
Thirty-minute lessons are currently available on Tuesday's & Wednesday's at 1:00, 1:30, 4:00 & 4:30 pm. For longer lessons, please feel free to call for availability.
