Get ready for St. Patrick's Day!
If you love the sound of the Irish tin whistle and you'd like to give it a try, or if you've dabbled a little and want to get a better understanding of this small but mighty instrument then this beginner workshop is for you! Workshop classes will focus on introducing the basics of technique, the role and use of the whistle, and an introduction to Irish music more generally. Get ready to jig and reel!
