NBHS Malawi Trip

This time next week pupils from NBHS set off for Malawi on a life changing trip. A small part of the plan is to take a bunch of penny whistles along, play some tunes, teach them to peers over there and leave the whistles behind. The whistles, along with other instruments such as fiddle, guitar, will be used to demonstrate ceilidh dances – a feature in which NBHS is very strong.

There are play-along midi files and pdf scores of some Scottish tunes here for pupils to hone their tin whistle skills.

I’d like to wish everyone well for the trip and look forward to hearing their tales next session.
