This year I switched to this book for teaching purposes. It's a very nice book for the beginning classes. Also has a nice assortment of music for the advanced students.

Has anybody else used this one?

When you get through with that one, pick up Grey Larsen's "Tin Whistle Toolbox" with CDs. If you can't play the whistle with that book...well, you can, that's all! It has everything you need in simple steps with sound clips on the CDs. I learned so much from it!

Connie, we will order that book as soon as Miss Moneypenny arrives back from the UK.

Kelly, I have Larson's bigger book "Irish Flute and Tin Whistle" and he has a great way of teaching more advanced techniques. :thumbsup:

As I said, Adrian, Mel Bay's is a really good tool for teaching. The advantage you might find for yourself is to add some tunes to your repertoire.

I'm using it for teaching, and even some of the students with fairly limiting learning disabilities are picking up sight reading skills.

I also use Mark's site. ESPECIALLY when I want more hymns and Christmas tunes to pass around. They really like Mark's selection, as do I.
