Teachers! You've been asking us for a budget-priced learn-to-play tin whistle kit for your students and we listened. Now for just $5 per pupil, we can outfit your entire class with books and whistles.

Pennywhistle for Beginners is an abridged edition of our acclaimed book, The Clarke Tin Whistle. This attractive beginners edition has all the same great beginning lessons as our Clarke book — note-for-note and word-for-word — at a price well within your school's budget.

Pennywhistle for Beginners is thirty-two pages long, has twenty-nine tunes, and comes with a Clarke Meg whistle in the key of D. The Meg is very similar to the popular Clarke Sweetone and is great for the classroom. A forty-four minute Pennywhistle for Beginners CD (optional) is also available.

We are happy to offer a 50% off-retail discount to schools, clubs, scout troops, religious groups, and other organizations on orders of $100 or more. Your discounted price for the book with whistle is $5. Your discounted price for the book and CD with whistle is $7.50. (Please note: we now offer a free download of the CD at our new site, www.pennywhistlesforschools.com. No purchase necessary.)

Larger discounts are available for system-wide purchases. Please e-mail us with your requirements or call us at 212-247-3231. (Retail customers please visit our Complete Products page.)


"The sound of the Clarke tin whistle is beautifully flute-like and our fourth graders are able to master it...your book has been invaluable...the kids can now play about ten tunes from memory and are reading music as they were taught by the book."— Katherine Clyne, music teacher, PS 192 , Harlem, NY
