Learn to Play the Irish Tin Whistle
The Tin Whistle, and in fact Irish Music in General, can be a bit of an addiction. There is something about the beat and the energy that draws you in and compels you to move and play it. Each time I perform on the Tin Whistle, it is common for people to enter the space and start dancing or tapping their feet.
The energy of this music is very healing to player and listeners alike.
Easy to Play!
Learning this wonderful instrument is surprisingly simple, and students can get up and running quite quickly with minimal instruction.
The way Troy uses and teaches the instrument is that the flute is a tool for creative self expression and spiritual connection.
