Expert Whistle Skills #2

Expert Whistle Skills 2 is designed to follow on from the original Expert Whistle Skills. In this course Thomas continues to explore more advanced whistle techniques such as the trill, vibrato, different types of rolls and tonguing technique. Emphasis is also placed on variation in ornamentation, phrasing, melody and rhythm. Although aimed at the advanced player, this course has much to offer the less experienced player also. Notation is provided as well as mp3's of the tune played slowly. Importantly, the learner is given the tools to transfer these new acquired skills to tunes which they already have in their repertoire.
