I absolutely love the whistle lessons with Angus. I sit down and do a bit at a time. It is so clear, both the way he explains it, the clear way he shows it and how he tells you to practice that before moving on. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to begin to play some of these lovely tunes like Morag of Dunvegan and I see Mull. They are gorgeous and I AM SO GRATEFUL for these lessons THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Online Learning

Through the Youth Music Initiative, Fèis Rois works with pupils and teachers in over 100 primary schools across the Highlands every year. Since 2004, thousands of young people have had the opportunity to participate in Gaelic song and tin whistle workshops for a period of 12 weeks in school.

If you are a pupil or teacher, you can use our online learning pages to continue your learning. Here you will find a series of tin whistle lessons with Angus MacKenzie, as well as a series of Gaelic song lessons with Rachel Walker.

You don’t have to be a Highland school pupil or teacher to enjoy these lessons – they are for everyone! We know that, given the large geographic area of Ross-Shire, not everyone is able to get to one of our weekly after school classes, so why not have a go here? The lessons guide you from the very beginning and gradually introduce more complex repertoire and techniques.

Let us know what you think of the lessons by contacting us. We would love to hear from you!

In addition to our beginner lessons in tin whistle and Gaelic song, we also have a series of online lessons available to intermediate / advanced fiddlers and guitarists.

  • Matheu Watson will lead you through some guitar tuition: English, Gàidhlig.
  • Fiddlers can access some online tuition from the wonderful Iain MacFarlane of Blazin Fiddles renown: English, Gàidhlig.
