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!

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.
