Learn a new instrument together!
Tin whistles are a great starter instrument – they’re small and light enough for little hands, inexpensive (about £6 for a standard beginner model), available in all sorts of fun colours and give quick results. The musical and physical skills children learn on a ukulele can be transferred to other instruments later on too.
Alison offers whistle lessons to whole classes, small groups and individuals in Bristol schools. The focus in the lessons is having fun playing music as an ensemble, with playing skills and musical knowledge taught along the way! Students work on performance skills from the start, and will have many opportunities to create new songs using their own ideas.
Skills developed: listening skills, musical knowledge and understanding, creativity, rhythm, pitch, coordination, teamwork, performing/public speaking
Alison can provide whistles and other musical resources, but the use of a projector or electronic whiteboard would be useful.
Alison has seven years of experience as an instrumental teacher, band leader and workshop tutor, working with all ages and abilities. She has an up-to-date enhanced DBS check and can provide a CV and references on request.
