try tinwhistleMost of the harp players in Ireland play a second, more portable, instrument. Consider the tinwhistle! It couldn't get more portable or lighter and a lot easier to play at a faster tempo (once you know what you're doing!). This is an introductory class. Bring your own tinwhistle (key of D please) or use one we'll provide. Feel free to bring a recording device since this class will be taught "by ear."
