Learning the tin whistle shouldn't be hard.

I love Irish music and the tin whistle and have always wanted to learn to play.... but where and how to begin.

"I went to a Gaelic Storm concert and was instantly drawn to the whistle. Pete told me he could teach me to play if I wanted and I bought a tin whistle the next day. I have had several lessons with Pete and can now play a couple songs, love being able to learn from Pete."

Andrea Dowdall

"Pete is a great teacher. He teaches our young daughter online and she is now playing a lot of her favorite songs. His lessons are worth every penny and my daughter loves him, she calls him "My Pete" I love how well everything is so well explained. It makes it very simple."

About the Teacher,

Peter Purvis

Peter grew up in the small village of Merrickville, located in the Ottawa Valley, Canada -- An area famous for its fiddle players, step dancing and maple syrup.

He began playing the Highland pipes at the age of 12 and began playing the Uilleann pipes and tin whistle at the age of 16. Growing up, he had great opportunities to take lessons and play with some of Canada's finest pipe bands, uilleann pipers and whistle players. It was these lessons from elite pipers and whistle players at a very young age that helped to mold him into the player he is today. ​

​He has an accomplished solo career, winning several championship supreme titles in North America as well as gold medals in both light music and Piobaireachd at the North American championships. His solo career took him to Gr. 1 before taking a leave from competitions to play with the internationally touring band, Gaelic Storm.  

Peter has been a part of the band Gaelic Storm since 2004.  He has recorded 2 DVDs and 9 Albums with the band, 7 of which were #1 in World music on the Billboard charts. Gaelic Storm has earned a reputation as one of the world-music scene’s preeminent Celtic bands. 

When he is not on the road with the band, Peter teaches and runs the Highland Bagpipe Academy, Uilleann Pipe Academy and Tin Whistle Academy.
