Drew and I shot three more videos today all in my kickin' pinstripe suit: after only seven lessons, students will be able to play the most important ornaments on the whistle!

Having covered the basics of whistle playing, the remaining lessons will attempt to pull together what has been taught as we learn new tunes.
