Tin Whistle Made Simple Vol.1
Tin Whistle Made Simple is a step-by-step tin whistle tutor for children learning to play Tin Whistle for the first time. It is an aid to the Revised Music Curriculum in primary schools covering aspects of both the Performing strand and the Listening and Responding strand. Also, on completion of this book, children will have dealt with and developed the musical concepts, which are part of the concepts development of the music curriculum.
As a B.Mus graduate and a practicing primary teacher, I have successfully used this step-by-step method with children in the middle and senior standards of primary school. Also the inclusion of worksheets at the end of each lesson is used as a consolidation of the material learned for the children and also as an assessment tool for the teacher.
Tin Whistle Made Simple Vol.2
Tin Whistle Made SimpleVol.2 is a continuation of the first tin whistle tutor of the same name. It is written for Primary School Children and is an aid to the Revised Music Curriculum. It covers aspects of both the Performing strand and the Listening & Responding strand and also encompasses many of the musical concepts, which are part of the concepts development of the music curriculum.
The first part of this book continues with the same step-by-step method as Vol.1. Each lesson introduces a new note or rhythm while reinforcing, simultaneously, what the child has already learned in previous lessons or in Vol.1. The second part of this volume presents various Irish Traditional tunes which are popular with young musicians!
The Simple Collection
The Simple Collection is a compilation of 65 tunes that I have used over the years in teaching traditional music to young musicians. I have put tunes in succession of each other that I have found fit nicely together in a music session.
As well as the written music, the accompanying CD will help the young player learn the tunes by listening and playing along with the musicians.
