With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Blackstone River Theatre must follow local, state and national guidelines and remain closed to in-person classes until further notice. We plan to offer ZOOM classes starting late-January. Watch this space for details! The dates below are obviously not correct but kept in place for class descriptions.
with Aubrey Atwater (for advanced beginner & continuing students)
There are currently no whistle classes scheduled for 2019. However, if you are interested in future classes, please email email@example.com to express interest!
A three-week class in Irish tin whistle with instructor Aubrey Atwater will be held on Wednesdays, Oct. 10, 17, and 24, from 6:30-7:25 p.m. This class is designed for advanced beginners AND continuing adults and teens. Minimum of 5 students needed to hold class. Fee for the three-week class is $45. Prepayment necessary!
Aubrey Atwater will teach technique and tunes for this 6-hole, traditional Irish instrument, blending lessons on traditional ornamentation and breathing with her unique style of hauntingly long notes and vibrato that she has developed over the years through trips to Ireland and influence from her early whistle mentor, Phil Edmonds. Please bring a key of D tin whistle. Playing by ear will be stressed (in addition to some reading of music) so please bring a recording device to class.
HOW TO REGISTER
