Whistle & Flute Students
My whistle & flute course is comprised of 2 main sections: the tune & technique libraries. The big idea here is that I’ll be teaching through tunes. If you’re just beginning, take a look at the beginner appropriate tune lessons as they include “Bare Bones” versions of the tunes without any ornamentation. When you’re ready to start incorporating ornamentation into your playing, pick a tune that you’ve already learned and give the ornamented version a try! When you come across a technique that you are unfamiliar with, open up the technique library and study up on that particular skill. When it comes to learning ornaments on the flute & whistle, you’ll want to start with cuts, taps & rolls (in that order). It’s very important that you don’t work on your rolls until you’ve mastered your cuts & taps individually.
Also for beginning students, please go through my foundational course first before progressing to the tune & technique libraries!
