Bodhran Classes

Bodhran
  (All Levels)
Errol Byers 10:00

For both Bodhran classes, the focus will be on learning the rhythms to accompany Irish traditional music. The whole school learns the same tunes by ear, so you will be able to play with others. In addition to class, there are different bands that you are invited to join (no additional fee) at 12:30pm. Going to band will allow you to practice the tunes outside of class with people playing other instruments. Children and adults can be in the same class.

The beginner class is for new students and the focus will be on learning the rhythms to accompany different types of tunes in Irish music. For the intermediate class, students will continue practicing the basic rhythms and learn additional beats that can enhance the tunes. A lot of the class time will consist of listening to the different types of tunes and practicing the rhythms with these tunes.
