Wanting to learn to PLAY WHISTLE?

***PLEASE NOTE: WE RECEIVED A GREAT RESPONSE AND HAVE OUR QUOTA OF GUINEA PIGS FOR THE TIME BEING. THANKS

Be a Guinea pig for our new book!  (and get a free book when it’s published!).

 Suzanne Houston and myself are collaborating on a new whistle tutor book.  We’re looking to draw inspiration from recent innovations in music education like  Colourstrings  and the Kodály Method, developed in Finland and Hungary respectively.  We’re also looking to bring together the most eclectic range of tunes ever assembled in a music book- touching on all genres and corners of the world.

We are currently looking for a small pool of guinea pigs to test the chapters out on – to gather feedback.  Bare in mind this is a beginners book so we are primarily looking for people who have recently started, or are looking to start, playing the whistle.   If you’d like to be included please email info@mkwhistles.com to express an interest.

Ross Ainslie – Homemade tunes

One of Scotland’s most respected instrumentalists, Ross Ainslie, recently released a book of his own tunes.  Ross plays with the Treacherous Orchestra, Dougie Maclean, Salsa Celtica and India Alba amongst others.   Here’s a crazy video him playing with Guitar, pipes and beatbox – check it out!

His tunebook is available from his website – http://www.rossainslie.com

 

Unbelievable!

Unbelievably we actually have some instruments in stock ahead of Christmas this year!  (there’s a first time for everything).
