Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn how to play!
Ipo Ahi O Ka Mele
It teaches the basics of music in a very simple and clear way, which helped me a lot as I am new to the whole western sheet music method.
Vrishab Kakade
The book leads the new player step-by-step in learning to play the tin whistle and the CD helps understand how the music should sound.

If you want to learn to play the tin whistle, or if you've begun to play and need some direction, this set is by far the best available tin whistle tutorial on the market. Bill Ochs is a brilliant player and teacher. Buy this set, work through it, and then go to New York and take a lesson with Bill. You'll find all the information you need at his web site (look for the web address in the book).

Very clear instructions. This book is obviously designed by someone who enjoys teaching the tinwhistle. In addition to tinwhistle basics, there are clear explanations of the basics of reading music. The lessons are well structured. This book is a good guide to people who want to learn the instrument on their own. It also has a good selection of tunes. Well worth the price.

If you want to learn how to play the tinwhistle, then this is the book. Starts you out with the very basics and works you up to the more advanced. Bill Ochs is by far one of the best whistle players out there. Make sure you buy the book with the cd; hearing how the tunes are played will help you to learn a lot better then the book alone. This is the best instruction book I have every seen. Clear, concise and never overwelming. You will not only love to play the whistle, but love learning to play.

The history of the Penny Whistle was interesting. It gives such thorough instructions on playing with many good songs to play to. Just listening to the CD is enjoyalbe. I recommend this book. A person will get their money's worth with this book and CD.

I wanted to learn to play the tin whistle, and had read good reviews about this book on Amazon. I got the deluxe with the CD. It is WELL worth every penny! It has been SO long since I've read music, I had forgotten how! I'd forgotten which notes are what! This book is great, it starts out teaching you to read music as well as how to play the notes on a Clark key of D tin whistle. It's easy to practice with the CD and self pace. I'm just now up to playing the songs without the letters below the notes, so I'm not advanced, but this book makes it so easy and fun to learn. I'm not getting frustrated and saying I'll never get it, I'm just going at my own pace and going further in the book and CD when I have time. When I don't I just spend a few minutes practicing what I've already gone over and cover the letters under the notes with a strip of paper. It's a great way to learn, and just what I had hoped for, I'm learning to play the tin whistle!

I really enjoyed all of the tunes in this book. It helped that I could read music to begin. The process of reading music is explained briefly and not until after you've already played a few songs, but the CD would definitely help anyone who was learning to read the notes on the staff for the first time. I don't think this would be a stumbling block or a reason not to get it- just something to be aware of. One thing I really liked was that there are short histories and backgrounds on the style of music.

I bought this book about three weeks ago and can already play a few simple peices.The accompanying cassette makes playing tunes all the more easy. I play guitar and am really into Celtic sounds. On a personal note, my grandfather used to play one quite well according to my mom but I was too young to remember. Now I am even more motivated ! BUY IT ! You won't regret it.
