Sarah Elizabeth replied to Susie's discussion Teaching Tin Whistle to Young Children in the group Whistlin' high and low
"I actually teach young children for a living, and I know exactly what you're feeling with the short attention span, Susie. Since the lesson is only twenty minutes, I say that they have no excuses to lose focus. However, they don't know…"

Teaching Tin Whistle to Young Children

I have a tutorial group made up of 4- and 5-year-olds this year.  One of our fine arts segments involves learning the whistle.  (It's also an opportunity to teach them basic music theory.)  Our biggest difficulty is that their tiny fingers are so small, and their hand span so short, they can't keep the finger holes covered long enough to play a note.  We've practiced B, A, G, and C-sharp a lot.  :)  We're practicing the first bit of a Christmas song (Jolly Old St. Nicholas), starting on B.…See More

Whistlin' high and low
