Step One: Teach Yourself Pennywhistle

Includes Book, CD & DVD, or VHS


This reasonably priced book, CD and video set was designed to help the beginning and intermediate whistle player. It includes very detailed instruction for the beginner, a fingering chart, many basics in reading music, as well as traditional ornamentation (cuts, rolls, bends, etc). All the tunes in the beginning of the book have fingerings printed above them, then as you progress the fingerings are only added when an alternate fingering is required - guitar/piano chords are included for all tunes.

Each exercise and tune are also played on the CD and on the video. On the CD, the whistle comes out one speaker, and the guitar accompaniment comes out the other. This allows you to play along with one or the other, or both, depending on how you set the balance of your stereo (this is very helpful...).


Book, CD and DVD set shown above


The book & the CD that come with this set are also known as Step One: Play Pennywhistle (the book has a different cover).
Both the CD and the video that are included with this set cover the entire book.


    We highly recommend this book, CD and video set for a beginning whistle player, or an intermediate player that wants to learn more about traditional ornamentation.

   It is necessary to have a Whistle in the key of D (Soprano D is recommended) to make proper use of this set. All the tunes are written in D or G (plus one in the key of A) - these keys are easily played with a D whistle. Take a look at our Whistle Section  if you don't own a D Whistle.
