Beginning Tin Whistle Workshop with Grey Larsen
Thursday, September 3:00 - 4:30 PM
W. Lafayette, Indiana, USA
Cost: sliding scale $22 - $30
At the home of Sunny Miller
Please call Sunny for reservation and location information: 413-627-5979

This workshop is for beginning-level players of the tin whistle, one of the most popular instruments of traditional Irish music. You are welcome even if you have never played a note on the whistle. One of the best things you can do for yourself as a beginner is to form good habits right away, avoiding pitfalls that you would have to unlearn later. Bring a whistle in the key of D, and Grey will have a few Susato whistles available for purchase. We'll explore the rudiments of playing, including holding the instrument in a relaxed way, fingering, breathing and phrasing. We'll learn a few simple melodies, and if there's time we'll take a first look at Irish ornamentation techniques. No music reading is necessary, though some free handouts will be available. Becoming familiar with the sounds of traditional Irish music before attending the workshop will be very helpful. Feel free to bring an audio recorder if you wish. Grey’s books will be available to purchase at the workshop. If you wish to view free excerpts from these books, you may do so at

Grey Larsen and Cindy Kallet will give a concert that same evening in W. Lafayette, at 7:30, at the Town and Gown Bistro, 119 N. River Road. To hear their music, please go to
