Understanding The Tin Whistle

Books | Pennywhistle

Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Unique among books on the Whistle and Celtic music, this book takes the role of a personal tutor. It explains in detail the peculiarities of the instrument, the ancient modal scales the Irish tunes are based on, and offers a results-oriented program for quickly developing ability. As well it offers a practical method for developing breathing skills, something few books discuss. But what makes this book truly unique is the discussion of mnemonic techniques and analytical listening skills, which would make it an excellent resource for both parents and teachers. The author explains a simple, straightforward method of internalizing the old dance tunes of the session repertoire based on understanding the music's structure and the use of mnemonic cues. The scope of Mr. Esson's book makes it relevant to a much wider audience than the title would suggest.
