I like the Cathal McConnell penny whistle instruction lessons on Homespun tapes. He starts out simple and moves on from there. I thinks it's very traditional Irish penny whistle. And keep an eye out for sales and it can be downloaded sometimes for half price. It is accessed through the purple player platform. I came across it from purchasing numerous guitar lessons.

I'd like to put in a thumbs up for Geraldine Cotter's books. I don't know if the older ones are still available but 'Rogha : Geraldine's choice' is a fine collection of tunes, clearly laid out with a play along CD (according to the cover)

I’ve received word that there is some confusion over the tutorial that was formerly called "The Clarke Tin Whistle--a Handbook by Bill Ochs” (once refered to by our Leader Dale as “the best whistle tutorial on the planet”). This has been updated and is now entitled, "The Bill Ochs Tin Whistle Handbook” published by Mel Bay,

There is another, similar sounding title by Ian Bascombe and Finn Harper entitled “The Official Handbook for the Clarke Tin Whistle”, published by the Clarke company, with different contents from the original Bill Ochs book.

And, to add to the befuddlement, there are still copies of the original "The Clarke Tin Whistle--a Handbook by Bill Ochs” in circulation on the second-hand market.

I pass this on so folks looking for one or the other won’t land up purchasing something different than what they intended.

(Not advertising for Amazon, but if you look there you'll find all three with illustrations of the covers and descriptions.)

Best wishes.

Steve

Hello, this is my first post here. My first whistle lesson was January 16, 2020, and my teacher is using the Mary Bergin Irish Tin Whistle Tutorial Book and CDs (2 CDs). The book is available from MaryBerginWhistle.com. There are two volumes now, with a third volume to follow. The CDs are helpful in that I can play the again and again until the music is something I can anticipate. That frees me to concentrate on the written music. You see, I'm learning to read music at the same time I am learning the heart/rhythm of Irish music. For me, the book/CD combination is very helpful. I see the notes by name and on the staff, and hear then played. Hope this helps someone. Sharon Leigh
