That was so much fun – challenging for me in just the right way

Welcome to Whistle Workshops!

If you want to improve your tin whistle or low whistle playing and are interested in online tuition then you are in the right place. Both private and group lessons are available here at Whistle Workshops.

My name is Conor Lamb and I have been playing the tin whistle professionally for over 15 years. I have taught workshops all over the world while touring with my bands Réalta and Music In The Glen and I am delighted to continue teaching students worldwide via Zoom and other online platforms.

Tuition is available for one to one private lessons, as well as categorised group workshops of up to six people. The group sizes are very limited to keep things interactive and group learning is also a great way to meet other musicians of a similar ability.

In the lessons we will work through technique, ornamentation, rhythm and phrasing, repertoire and practice tips and of course throughout the class you can ask any questions you might have.

For further information please contact me by email conor@whistleworkshops.com

A gifted musician and an equally gifted teacher, able to break things down and explain them or model them super... effectively. Well organized. Best of all, he plays with such joy that it has inspired and lifted my playing--I'm getting compliments from my band!read more

Conor is a very talented musician and an excellent music teacher. I'm collecting a nice little repertoire of tunes and... picking up the ornamentation needed to bring them to life. Zoom actually works really well for a whistle workshop and Conor's short recordings of the tunes and techniques taught in the workshops are an invaluable tool to practice with afterwards in your own time.read more

Over the past number of months I've been trying to teach myself tin whistle, what I did learn was that I wasn't... disciplined enough, so I decided to look for lessons on line and my first stop was at Conor's site. I have found Conor's lessons very relaxed, fun, interactive yet he gets through the work very efficiently, I would highly recommend any one who is thinking of taking up tin whistle for the first time or if ye need inspiration to take it to the next level to get in touch with Conor, I know it was my best move...read more

With his expert ear, he tunes into each player in turn and offers a tailor-made selection of insightful tips, all warmly infused with encouragement which, providing you put the practice in, will accelerate your musical journey, getting you to the performance level you aspire to.read more
