Peripatetic teaching of the tin-Whistle was introduced this year to Holy Family. We piloted this scheme in line with a similar initiative from the South of Ireland’s highly successful ‘Irish traditional music scheme for schools’.
There are currently 12 children receiving individual tin-whistle lessons from Mrs Bronagh Davey from the Davey School of Music. Four of these children are doing their first grade through the London College of music. It is hoped next year to introduce a further 8-10 whistle students as well as two wooden flutes.
