Ready to take your bodhrán playing to the next level? This continuing class will cover a different topic each week that builds on foundational skills but does not require knowledge from previous weeks. In other words, this class is designed so that anyone who feels they have the basics down can attend as many or as few classes as they are able without having to commit to a whole month. Weekly topics will include alternate Jig, Reel, Slipjig, and Polka patterns, advanced pitch bending techniques, tuning for different scenarios, alternate tipper options, developing a unique musical voice, playing in odd meters, "fills" and much more! Bringing your own drum and tipper is required. Payment is due at the beginning of each class.
