What age group do you teach?
We teach all age groups from 7 year up.  For those starting out on their musical journey, one of the best instruments to begin with is the tin whistle, no matter what their age. 

Do I have to start with Tin Whistle? 
 We would recommend that those under 10 years would consider learning the tin whistle for at least one, if not two, years to give them a good grounding in traditional Irish music tunes, rhythms and a sense of achievement. Many of our older students continue learning new tunes on their tin whistle in tandem with their second instrument.
