Tin Whistle Workshops on Zoom

Since December of 2020, I've been teaching a free, tip-supported, intermediate level Tin Whistle workshop on Zoom every Monday night from 5:00 - 7:00 PM Pacific.

This is not intended to be a beginner's class, but certainly newer players may benefit from the workshop.

It would be ideal if you already can play some tunes on the instrument and have at least some basic understanding of ornamentation on the whistle.

I have no fixed agenda. I'll tailor the workshops based on the needs and requests of the participants.

I can play tunes you request, go over my approach to ornamentation and variation, address any specific challenges you might have, whatever the participants would be interested in.

Unsolicited Testimonials


"Thank you for hosting the Whistle Workshop earlier this week on Monday evening. It was a delight!

The educator in me wants to over-analyze everything you did that set us up for success together, and provide feedback. I really appreciated how smoothly you led the group and facilitated great thinking for each of us and all of us at the same time. Thank you for taking the (important) time to let us get to know each other a bit in the beginning, that helped remove a lot of the pressure or nerves for participating in an online forum.

You lead us through a great balance of playing/listening, as well as philosophical conversations regarding playing, sessions, etc. And, you honored the journey that each of us is on, while also acknowledging none of us is ever at the end—modeling a humble and healthy growth mindset. As I mentioned, I trained classically at a Conservatory, and the politics of that environment is in such stark contrast to my experiences so far in the folk music community—and a welcome and warm contrast! The conversational nature of your workshop felt appropriate as a coming together of minds to celebrate and enjoy Irish trad music and whistle techniques. I am grateful for the experience, and would be interested in attending a future event.

Cheers!"

"Thank you so much for the masterclass!

I really enjoyed it and find your humility refreshing. I learned a lot.

Would love to do some lessons with you if you have availability. I’m planning to join the session tomorrow night as well.

Thank you!!"
