Wednesday 7pm-9pm

Spring '24

Join the fantastic Ian Sutherland for this lower intermediate whistle class. Suitable for those who have been playing for a while and want to improve technique and tune repertoire.

Ian's first instrument is the Great Highland Bagpipes, closely followed by the small pipes. Ian started on the whistle in his thirties and has over 40 years experience playing the instrument.

Students can expect to work on old and contemporary pipe and fiddle tunes on the whistle, plus get some tips about learning and playing techniques and breathing techniques.
