Ceol Tracks Music Books
“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning”
Ceol Tracks is honored to have Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, the Irish culture association endorse all our books.
About my Books....
I’d like to tell you a little about my tune and tutor books which are available to buy right now. Each of the books is a proven method that will improve your learning experience compared to other similar books on the market. They are also endorsed by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, which is the largest group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music.
I have 3 books available Irish Traditional Session Music Book 1 & 2, and a Tin Whistle tutor for beginners. Book 1 is aimed at beginners to intermediate, while book 2 is aimed at intermediate to advanced. Books 1 & 2 have 64 well-known tunes set out one tune per page in STAFF, ABC NOTE NAMES, with CHORDS. There are finger charts included for Tin Whistle, Fiddle, Irish Accordion, Irish Concertina, Banjo, Mandolin, Flute, and Uilleann Pipes. The books include all tunes played at a slow-paced on a CD.
My Tin Whistle book is a great resource for anyone interested in starting to learn Irish traditional music. Each lesson is graded, building on the previous lesson. The book will teach you about finger placement, breath control, tunes styles, and their rhythms, technique, and tune decoration. The book will take you from complete beginner to advanced. It’s also ideal for primary schools as it follows the Irish primary school curriculum. The book includes all tunes played at a slow-paced on a CD.
My books are great value at just €12 each and even better value in packs. Free postage is included worldwide. So, if you are interested in learning Irish traditional music Ceol Tracks books are for you!
I absolutely love the two books. Perfect for beginner tin whistlers, fiddle players, etc. They are never off the table in our house. Very easy to follow. All the most popular sessional tunes. And CDs that announce each tune before it starts. Highly recommend.
I must say they’re excellent.
I just wanted to say that I received the Ceol Tracks music books. I must say they’re excellent and my daughter is enjoying the primary tin whistle book at the minute. I am a primary school teacher myself and I teach Primary One. For me, children learn when activities/tasks are presented in a child-friendly format. Learning should be fun and enjoyable but also encouraging children to be independent learners and thinkers. You definitely have achieved this through the format of the books – how they progress step by step and are easy to read.
I’m glad a P7 pupil in our school recommended these books to me and I can see why Comhaltas has endorsed them. Once again thank you for an excellent resource!
Great service thanks so much

My daughters have started the tin whistle.
My daughters have started the tin whistle. I have this book for them at home and they love it. Not only does it give the notes of the melodies & tunes, it gives the words or lyrics to go with the tunes in both Irish and English. We also like the pictures! The book also comes with a CD which develops listening skills. A Lovely book to have.

3 great books for teaching tin whistle. There is a wealth of songs to choose from. Having the CD to accompany the songs is an added bonus. I’d highly recommend these books.

Primary Tin Whistle
I’m quite pleased. The book was shipped very rapidly and I received it in the US within a few days. The book comes with a CD which is helpful to hear the tunes I am learning first. The book is exactly what I was looking for. It is a bargain at 12 euros, I would have expected to pay a bit more for such a nice book.
