Hand Drum Workshop

I would be happy to provide Bodhran and Doumbek workshops as well as drummer’s circle at festivals and dance camps.

The Bodhran workshop will introduce the students to the techniques needed to produce a wide variety of sounds on the drum. It will incorporate the use of triplets and pitch variation. The Kerry style (traditional) as well as the newer top end style of playing will be covered.

In the Doumbek workshop the students will learn the language of the drum. Basic finger and hand techniques will be covered as well as Doumbek rudimental drumming patterns. The participants will gain insight into the wonderful tones this drum has to offer.

The drummer’s circle would be less structured and include all types of hand percussion instruments. The circle will be an exhilarating and rhythmical experience.
