Irish Flute (Tin Whistle)

Raphaël De Cock 
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

The course

Beginners will learn how to play the tin whistle, a simple 6 hole flute. Of course, the repertoire will include traditional jigs and reels, but also some slow numbers and more exotic tunes from Sweden, Belgium, Brittany ….

The course focuses mainly on the interpretation of the Irish repertoire rather than on instrumental technique. The aim is to give students the level necessary to participate in one of the famous Irish jam sessions!

Raphaël De Cock 

Raphaël De Cock plays and sings with, among others, Griff, Osuna, Northern Lights, Muntagna Nera (Graindelavoix), NadiSuna, the Collectif Muzikaciné (Odna), Néboa, Waira, Tenore Monte Arvu and A Contrabanda. Raphaël began to play the Irish flute (tin whistle and low whistle) when he was 16 years old. The following year he started playing the uillean pipes (Irish bagpipes) and since then Raphael has not stopped collecting and playing traditional musical instruments. This musical millipede went on to specialize in a variety of ethnic singing styles, perhaps the most remarkable among them being Tuvan throatsinging. Meanwhile he has blossomed as a multi-instrumentalist and among other things he plays all sorts of flutes, bagpipes (gaita galega, Irish uillean pipes, Swedish säckpipa, Picard muchosa, Bulgarian gaida), Jew’s harp, stringed instruments (Siberian chatkhan, Tuvan chanzy, Chinese guqin), fiddles (Tuvan igil, Norwegian Hardanger fiddle Bulgarian gadulka) etc.
