My name is Ryan Duns and I am teaching a course entitled "Introduction to the Irish Tin Whistle" at Fordham University. Some of you may have already seen the videos I have posted to YouTube.
I am preparing to teach two sections of the course next semester: beginner and intermediate. In hopes of making the course better, I was wondering if I might solicit feedback from some of the people here.
If you have seen or have the desire to see these videos, you can go to
and look at the various videos I have posted. The teaching videos - "Fordham University’s Intro to the Irish Tin Whistle" - are the ones I would love to hear back about.
The basic areas:
1. Is the teaching clear?
2. Are the tune selections appropriate?
3. How could the videos be improved?
I’ve put the videos on YouTube with the two-fold hope of allowing my registered students easy access to the weekly lessons AND to make available to a wider audience a class that might help to introduce them to Irish music.
Any suggestions/feedback would be most appreciated!
