Learn to play the quintessential Celtic drum with Bill Troxler!
The class will demonstrate the basic skills required to master the bodhrán: how to hold the drum and tipper (beater), how to strike the drum, how to play a few essential reel and jig rhythms, how to make a cheap drum sound great, and how to select a bodhrán to purchase.
Students will have access to a website with videos that support study of the bodhrán beyond the class. If you can count to 9, turn a doorknob, and shake water off your hands, odds are you can master the bodhrán.
Schedule a week or two, or three! Or, just sprinkle some classes in between other commitments.
