    THANK YOU! I totally bombed at tin whistle last year because I couldn't come up with a plan that flowed well for me. This is perfect!

    Thank you, thank you! I wasn't sure how to pull this off, either. I am totally going with your plan.

    Hi 😉 I love your lesson plan – thank you so much. I'm tutoring Abecedarian's and this is very helpful! I'm looking for the large print 'Mary had a little lamb' like the picture you have posted in your lesson plan. Can you lead me to where I can find it? I've made an exhaustive search on CC Connected and couldn't find it. Many thanks 🙂

    @ Laura and Keli – I am no longer on CC Connected, so cannot locate it for you to tell you. I'm so sorry. I did have trouble myself finding it on CC Connected – I remember I had to basically just look down all the tin whistle files and I downloaded a bunch of stuff that wasn't what I wanted in the process. I looked on my computer to see if I still had it, but couldn't find it.

    Thank you ever so! It’s my first year tutoring too, never having been in foundations before! You have a great blog–I clicked around. 🙂

    Can you please tell me where I can find the “foundations” book you refer to in your article? Thanks

    Thanks so much for these lesson plans! The You Tube video is so helpful. I’m a musician, but have been super nervous about the craziness of trying to teach 4’s and 5’s to play (it’s my 1st year tutoring)! I love how she says she just wants to “give them a little bit of success.” That will help me have reasonable expectations, haha…

    Hi Julie, where did you find the CC Foundations song library?

    Do you have a strategy for teaching the “right hand notes?” My First graders (6-7 years) have trouble remembering to keep their top (left hand) fingers down on the top holes when playing the bottom (right hand notes).
