Whistle 1 with Peter Saunders
Tuesday, 7pm - 9pm
What - Whistle 1 some previous experience preferred but complete beginners can be accommodated - perhaps at a different time at least to start with. A whistle in the key of D is required and access to a computer with a webcam or smartphone.
I cover a wide range of topics from how to hold the whistle, fingering, rhythm, learning tunes, reading the music, playing by ear, whistle tablature, musicality and introducing ornamentation.
This is carried out mainly through using well known songs and commonly heard traditional tunes. The overriding principle is to learn through fun.
How - 2 hr group lessons on Zoom, files will be shared on Thinkific, communication will be by email. Participants also record themselves on video from time to time to get individual feedback and to allow group videos to be created.
SC&T are using Zoom and an online platform called Thinkific to host the online classes this term. Thinkific is an online platform where participants can find all supporting lesson material, lesson recordings and music in one place and sign up for the weekly classes. You will find the Zoom link in the course material for your class.
Price for the term is: £100 - this can be paid in one lump sum when you sign up, or in 3 monthly instalments of £33.33 - you can choose your preference when you sign up.
