Tin Whistle

St. Peter's N.S. Tin-whistle classes/Tin-whistle ensemble

We have a very strong musical tradition here in St. Peter's with the establishment of our strings' project almost ten years and the running of school musicals (Oliver and Annie over the past thirteen years) prior to that.  A few years ago, Ms. Ryan set up a tin-whistle ensemble with her 6th class pupils. Lessons took place every Wednesday after school. The ensemble was an off-shoot of tin-whistle lessons which took place during class time as part of the music curriculum.

Ms. Ryan's ensemble learned a wide variety of pieces from slow traditional songs to hymns and more lively pieces such as polkas.   They performed on numerous occasions since their formation (as part of our orchestra open days (at Christmas), for Seachtain na Gaeilge, the Confirmation Ceremony in February of that year and also the 6th class Graduation Mass).   Let's hope that our former 6th class pupils will further their musical skills and develop them beyond the boundaries of St. Peter's.
