Highly recommended. I joined the first week and I’m booked in again for tomorrow. For anyone debating whether to do this, I was so nervous and thought about backing out but there was absolutely no need. It is so relaxed and chilled. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

Class types

To help ensure everyone is matched up with players of a similar level there are 5 different classes to choose from. These range from complete beginner through to advanced players. Simply choose the description that matches you best from the following 5 options:

Level 1 – Beginner: “This is all very new to me but I want to learn! I would like help with the fundamentals of playing the whistle and of Irish music.”

Level 2 – Song Player: “I am comfortable with the basics of the whistle. I can play some slow songs and would like to improve my technique and learn to play some faster tunes.”

Level 3 – Tune Learner: “I can play several dance tunes at a slow or moderate pace. I sometimes rely on sheet music or tabs to learn or remember tunes but I am keen to increase my repertoire and to learn by ear.”

Level 4 – Tune Player: “I can learn tunes by ear and have a range of jigs and reels I can play at a moderate pace without relying on sheet music. I want to build upon this with some more advanced techniques.”

Level 5 – Advanced: “I am a seasoned musician. I have a strong repertoire of tunes at session pace and can very quickly learn tunes by ear.”

What people say…

“I did one of these workshops with Conor last Monday, and it put me in a good mood for a week! Zoom worked great despite workshop members being not only on different sides of the Atlantic but on different sides of North America as well.” – N.N.

“For anyone interested but unsure- definitely do it! Conor is a great teacher, the workshop is great fun, and it’s nice to meet other whistle players of a similar level.” – C.G

“I had my first workshop on Monday and thoroughly enjoyed, we had US east & west coast, Scotland, Channel Islands and Belfast on line! Zoom worked very well with the ability to mute yourself and have a little practice before you played to the group again working nicely. Conor is a great teacher and I’m looking forward to getting back into the whistle again. Great idea thanks Conor” – D.B.

“The lesson for beginners was great! It was my first ever music lesson, and as someone who gets horrific stage fright about performing or even just practising music, I was really relaxed. It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see what will happen next week” – L.M.
