What is Tin Whistle Tutor?

Tin Whistle Tutor is an online course and resource designed to help your CC Foundations class play music, joyfully, during our Fall Tin Whistle unit.

How’s that for the grammar of Tin Whistle? lol

Let me introduce myself.

My name is Rachel Ludt. I am a mom to five AMAZING kiddos and a Classical Conversations home school mamma since 2011 (Plain old homeschool since 2007.) I am also a Suzuki Violin Teacher, passionate about how young children can learn music as easily as they can acquire language.

Often, I over hear Classical Conversations tutors express nervousness and frustration over the tin whistle unit in the fall. “I almost said no to tutoring Foundations BECAUSE of the Tin Whistle unit.” (Friend of mine, you know who you are!)

Friends, it does not have to be this way!

Join me as we walk through my original curriculum to discover the beauty that is possible in music within your own family and your Classical Conversations community.

What To Expect In Class

All of the classes here at Ludt Home Life Resources are broken down into project-based lessons and individual tasks within each lesson. This bite-sized approach to learning makes it easy to understand, and you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish in just 3-5 minutes at a time! During this introductory Tin Whistle Tutor course, I’ll show you how to:

  • Set up an encouraging and controlled musical classroom where music flourishes and redirection is limited
  • Sing and play simple songs that introduce one note or concept at a time
  • Play-a-long tracks to support learning in the classroom
  • A 27 page printable curriculum with weekly lesson plans
  • and more!
