Lowering down the volume (for neighbors’ sake)
Hello everybody and thank you for reading. I introduce myself: I begun studying the whistle some month ago, and this is my very first approach with making music.
I’m learning using the Ryan Duns SJ video lessons on youtube and a beginners tune book as primary sources of learning, while I’m using thesession.org primarily for reading the people’s discussions (I fear that the tunes here are too hard for me, yet).
Well, now it’s my turn to ask for something here :-).
My problem is that I would really need to critically reduce the volume of my whistles - possibily without altering the tones too much.
That would permit me to study without stress, both others and (most important :-) ) myself while studying, concentrating more on what I do, than on avoiding to disturb others (breathe slower… it’s too late… choose a lower whistle… and so on).
I’ve seen in a shop a device used to silence down recorderers, here it is:
(link to the english version is top left on the page).
I wonder if such a thing can be fine with a whistle too, or if there are any other tricks that people do to solve the problem. I suppose I’m not the only one to suffer from this issue :-)
Thank you all so much!
