Tin Whistle Page

June 02, 2017

Dear Parents,

The children have completed our tin whistle project but hopefully it isn't the end of them playing the tin whistle.

We have added some new resources to the website so that the children can carry on playing at home. There is also a resource which they can print out to compose their own music. All they need is a blue, yellow (amber) and green colouring pencil.

We have created a new method of teaching the tin whistle to make it easier to understand how musical notation works. They should already understand that B is the highest pitch, A is the middle pitch and G is the lowest pitch - and we show that by drawing the coloured dots at different heights. The new resources combine both pitch and rhythm using different sizes of coloured dots.

  • B = Blue
  • A = Amber (yellow)
  • G = Green

Please take the opportunity to listen to your child’s progress and encourage them to practice.

Follow the links for the final questionnaires below if you haven't had chance to do it yet. It's easy to do and should only take a couple of minutes. Please enter the personal code that was written in your child’s homework journal on Monday 03/04/17. This means we don’t need your name.
