The tunes are arranged in difficulty from beginner to more advanced. While this title does include some basic info for learning to play the whistle, we really recommend that a beginning player pick up a more complete tutorial also - a few good choices for children are "Fun With The Tin Whistle", "Tinwhistle for Beginners" and "You Can Teach Yourself Tinwhistle".

From the author:

This book has been arranged in a manner that gradually introduces children to reading music on the stave. The beginners' section has the music on the stave with the names of the notes and the fingerings given under the stave. The intermediate section has the names of the notes only under the stave, and the subsequent sections are arranged according to tune types. Throughout the first two sections the learner is gradually introduced to the range of notes on the whistle, starting with just the three simplest notes for the tune number one and expanding the range of notes used as the tunes progress. Within the first two sections, tunes have also been selected for the way they progress from simple rhythms and tempos to more difficult ones.

Simpler tunes of each type are given at the start of each of the sections of dance tunes. The author has included a number of his own tunes, specially composed to suit a particular stage of learning. These are number 11, 12, 21, 30, 43, 44, 58, 59, 68, 69, 76, 105 and 107.
