The NEW Clarke Original Tinwhistle Teaching Set includes a Clarke Original Tin Whistle in D, 160 Page Tutor Book, and 2 CD’s with 128 tracks. Writtten by Ian Bascombe and illustrated by Finn Harper

The age-old sounds of Ireland, England, Scotland and early America come to life with this remarkable book and CDs for tin whistlers of all levels.

Originally produced for the Clarke tin whistle, the book and CDs are compatible with all tin whistles and pennywhistles in the key of D. The set is available in various configurations with or without a tin whistle. Suitable for ages 8 to adult.

No previous musical training is necessary. The lessons are so clear and easy to follow that a complete beginner can learn to play a simple tune at first sitting. Then through a specially selected series of folk tunes, beginners are carefully guided through all the basics of playing one step at a time.

Intermediate and advanced players will enjoy exploring the book’s exciting collection of traditional music. Aside from the tracks supporting the 31 exercises there are 50 additional tunes included.

"Ian Bascombe is the perfect advocate for the tin whistle. Like the instrument itself, he has a longevity within numerous musical landscapes spiced by a youthfulness, humour and global engagement that is eveident through this wonderful work. His passion here is palpable, only tempered by a structured and patient approach that anyone new or however inveterate to the instrument can learn from. The historical detail is both absorbing and well-researched, and as a bonus the book is beautifully illustrated by another fine traditional musician, Finn Harper." - Dr. Niall Keegan, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Associate Director, The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick.

Includes:

  • Everything you need to know to get started
  • Lessons for new players, with lots of tunes to play
  • For more advanced players, lessons on 'ornamenting' the music, with more tunes to play
  • The story of the instrument and some incredibly interesting historical snippets
  • A brief guide to reading music
  • Some thoughts on Irish traditional music and its style
  • Even more tunes - fifty of them
