Fèis Rois accordion players
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.
