Bodhran Ensemble

The heartbeat of Irish traditional music, the bodhran is one of the world’s most versatile and expressive drums. You’ll be playing basic jigs and reels in your very first lesson, and by the end of the session you’ll have an armful of rhythms in your repertoire. The class will also cover techniques that will help you incorporate grace notes and even melody in your playing.

This session is for intermediate players who already know the basic rhythms and fundamental principles of bodhran playing. This is not an introductory class, but introductory classes will return, and private lessons are always available for any level of player.
