Haven't found anywhere to buy it yet. More waiting. So frustrating! Didn't you say you saw them in a shop window, Mr Gumby? What shop was that?

I didn't. I looked at them during the pre-launch discount sale and later in the NPU shop that's in the hall in Miltown Malbay for the week.

I've had no reply from Mary Bergin's information email address. I'm hoping for news on an Internet based e-tailer that'll be stocking the 3 volumes.

I'm confident that the tutorial will become available after the various launches.

The wait has been this long so far... what's a few more... (d/w/m/yr) :)


Now that's an item I'd like to see offered from the Cafépress

Here's what Mary Bergin responded when I asked about purchasing the tutorials:

"Dear Friends,

I am delighted to announce that Volumes 1 and 2 of my (3 Volume) Tutorial were launched at The Willie Clancy School of Music in Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare in Ireland on Sunday 7th July.

I will also be launching the Tutorial on the east coast of the U.S.A. in East Durham at the Catskills Irish Arts Week 15th - 20th July and later, on the west coast in Whidbey Island, Seattle, at Cascadia Irish Music Week 11th - 16th August.

My website www.maryberginwhistle.com is currently being updated. Both Volumes will be available to purchase from the website from Friday 18th July.

About the Tutorial:

Volume 1 comprises a Lesson Book accompanied by 2 CDs. In this Volume, through step-by-step sequential lessons, I introduce you to essential fundamental techniques that form the basis of controlled, precise and defined whistle playing. These techniques, which include breath control, articulation and ornamentation, are explained, demonstrated and incorporated into specially selected tunes of various tempos. Attention is also given to the development of a strong sense of rhythm.

Volume 2 is a continuation of Volume 1 and in order to assimilate the new techniques introduced, it is necessary to be knowledgeable and accomplished in all of the material contained in Volume 1. Volume 2 comprises a Lesson Book accompanied by 3 CDs. Here, I introduce you to all of the other most common dance forms. The ‘internal’ rhythm, so vital to traditional Irish music is thoroughly explored. This Volume also includes more advanced ornamentation and techniques and you will learn how to incorporate these into specific tunes included in the lessons. Equipped with an understanding of the ‘internal’ rhythm of the music and with these necessary techniques and skills you will very soon notice a transformation in the overall standard of your playing.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of putting this body of work together and I am very pleased that it will soon be available to you.

Wishing you all the very best,

Kindest regards,

Mary Bergin"

Yes , big doubt about it :

'available to purchase from the website from Friday 18th July. '

Friday 18th does not exist, or this is .... 2014. QED.

For now, nothing on the website....

I feel like a kid at Christmas with no gift.
:sniffle:

Cheers T.

From the table of contents, it seems very well organized, and addressing beginners needs in a progressive, orderly fashion. Looks very good. I'm surprised at the inclusion of tonguing so early in the works, I was under the impression that tonguing was an articulation prone to misuse/overuse by beginners and thus was considered not suitable for the earlier stages of learning, anyone care to elaborate on that?

Also, not that one can easily put a price tag on knowledge, and I don't in any way mean to imply that a book's worth bears any relationship to the number of pages within (I would like to repeat both assertions a few times, lest my following comment be misconstrued)... but taking in consideration their length, within the context of books in general and music tutors in particular, it would seem both books are rather pricey. I wonder if this may simply be the consequence of a very small printing operation (where the cost per item is rather high) or are there any other factors involved (costs of recording the audio CDs, for instance, or storage and distribution, or something else)?
