Irish Pennywhistle: Beyond Beginners
with Chris Gray
This class will go beyond the fundamentals of playing tunes on the Irish Pennywhistle (tin whistle). It will focus on learning tunes by ear, ornamentation, and playing with other musicians. Some experience playing simple tunes and scales is expected.

Chuck Whitney has been a science educator in Hancock County schools and adjunct college faculty member for 27 years. He has been playing Celtic music and making musical instruments for the last 17 years. No class 02/21/18; makeup class (if needed) 04/04/18.
