Art Solomonian will tell you of the history and the lore of the Bodhran while you begin to learn basic strokes, triplets, basic rhythm and how to use your left hand.

You will be surrounded by other drummers who are just as excited and passionate about the drum as you. This is both motivating and inspiring. It is an opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills and broaden your musical horizons over four weeks leading up to Celtfest 2018.  Our Bodhrán courses offer the learner an opportunity of practicing the basic strokes and giving the confidence to play solo or within the group seisiún. The Bodhrán courses attract a wide variety of participants from the absolute beginner to those in need of more practice.
