Post subject:  Christmas Carols for Whistle Beginners

I like this time of year, because teaching music students to play the pennywhistle in the months leading up to Christmas is fun.

I received, as a Christmas gift, the whistle that got me started. As a result of my experiences learning to play Christmas songs, I decided to create a website with freely downloadable picture diagrams, showing each note's fingering for more than a dozen carols.

This year I added two background tracks which would allow someone to play a whistle solo with background accompaniment -- maybe at a church service, or at home, or on a street corner perhaps.

If you know anyone just starting out on the whistle, they might be interested in the materials.

The site is called "A Pennywhistle for Christmas." (

Howdy Steve, welcome to PWA!

I looked around on your site and found out you're also a bit of a theatre geek. :) I daresay you'll also find one or two xaphoon enthusiasts here.
