So, what's it all about?

       There are many individuals who would like to learn to play. I have met people who travel hundreds of miles to reenactments and musters who simply cannot do the same on a regular basis for lessons, but would still very much like to learn. I devised a system just for them, consisting of a music book and an audio compact disk.

       Please note that the fife played on the CD is a Bb instrument, beyond any doubt the most popular in use today. If you don't know if you have a Bb fife, measure the distance between the center of the blow hole and the center of the last finger hole. It should measure about 10-7/8 inches, give or take a bit.

       The lessons in the book are keyed to 75 tracks on the CD, so you can hear exactly how the instrument is supposed to sound when you play the exercises.

    When you see   in the book, go to that CD track.
