I live in Swansea South Wales, I started playing the whistle about 9 months ago, I am also a ukulele player and I play in a ukulele band, when I first started playing the whistle I found it quite hard to keep the notes under control, what with my work and band commitments the whistle took a back seat, around a month or two I picked it back up, started to practice again and I am really enjoying playing it, I still struggle to keep the notes under control but not like when I first started to play, I am getting a lot of pleasure playing the whistle, I keep a whistle in the car and one in work so I can practice when I get a spare minute, My favourite whistle is my tweaked Jerry Freeman Generation D, which has a really beautiful voice
