Instant Tin Whistle Series The Tin Whistle is a musical instrument possessing two special qualities: it is the cheapest and it’s the simplest. However, don’t be misled into thinking that it’s barely more than a toy, or that it is inferior or a second-rate instrument. On the contrary, despite its cheapness and its easiness for beginners, the tin whistle is a full-blooded musical instrument, capable of music of a quality often unsurpassed by far more eminent instruments. In spite of this, the majority of people who acquire a tin whistle have only modest aims in viewÉindeed, most just buy on a passing whim; others, perhaps, receive a whistle as a gift. For whatever reason, everyone who obtains a tin whistle and experiences a surge of enthusiasm is a potential player. Sadly, far too many of these potential players are unable to fulfil their initial expectations. Their enthusiasm fades and dies and their will to play is lost forever. Ask yourself these questions: 1 Are you a potential whistle player? 2 Do you want to succeed? If your answers are yes, then you shouldn’t delay. You should use one or more of these books while that first spark glows. They will grab, nurture and enflame your enthusiasm, leaving you well and truly hooked. They have been carefully designed to substantially increase your chances of success. HOW?????? By the use of a carefully formulated six-point plan, the books set out to: Produce instant results – the special whistle tablature means you are able to play the tunes right from the word go! Sustain interest – the titles in the books have been carefully chosen to make sure that most people are familiar with most of the tunes. Thus, your attention will be held throughout the initial vulnerable period of learning and you can build up a reasonably sized repertoire quickly. Introduce traditional music – the kind of music ‘the whistle does best’. A few hand-picked traditional tunes have been included, to get you started on the ‘real journey’. Promote enjoyment – the inclusion of words* and guitar chords and the encouragement to play with others will give you the chance to realise just how much fun music really is. Stimulate learning – illustrations are included in the books which will focus your attention on the information which they surround. This will increase your chances of learning at least some of the playing hints and the music theory that the books provide. Encourage further research – although instructions in the books have been kept to a minimum and as simple as possible, just a smattering of advanced information has been included, to inspire you to learn more. Pick the book – Folk, Popular, Irish or Scottish – in which you know most tunes. Every single note is shown by a special whistle tablature as well as conventional notation. The instructions are very gently graded and this means many people reach the end of the book. Perfect for individuals and groups, or schools wanting to incorporate traditional music into their curriculum. These tunes are suitable for any melody instrument. Written by Dave Mallinson. All with chords, illustrations, rudiments of music and chord charts.

The Sound Shop was established in 1968 by Tommy Leddy and Sean McEvoy, Tommy and Sean had being hiring PA equipment for some time from their homes and seeing there was a gap in the market for musical equipment and instruments they went on to open their first shop in 14 North Quay Drogheda, and so the Sound Shop was born. The business grew quickly so it wasn’t long before a much larger premises was needed and just a few doors away from the original shop stood Mayoralty House a historic building with charm that became the home of music in Ireland for the next 37 years, With the success of the business and rise in popularity of out of town shopping the Sound Shop needed to be part of this movement so the decision was made to finally leave North Quay and built a brand new 12,000 sq ft mega store along with a 900 seat theater the TLT where both business still reside today 2023.
