Tin Whistle

My school, the West Philadelphia Achievement Charter Elementary School hooked up with James Donohoe from a small town in Ireland this year. Mr. Donohoe connected with a communications firm in Wayne, PA to hold live webcast music lessons from his home to our school's music classes. The students learned how to play the Irish Tin Whistle, a recorder-like instrument. They also exchanged information about our different cultures and countries. This morning Mr. Donohoe visited our school in person and there was a small media frenzy with Fox 29 and Action News there to interview Mr. Donohoe, our CAO, Stacy Phillips, and our music teacher Paul DiGilio. Look for the story on these stations starting at 5PM.
