These online lessons will cover everything from basic traditional Irish dance beat timing, traditional Irish music session performance, alternative beats, how to get the most out of your bodhrán skin, how to tune your bodhrán and everything else you need to get started on your bodhrán learning journey.
With Rónán’s magical way of teaching I guarantee you will fall completely and utterly in love with bodhrán playing.
Each goatskin is hand-selected for quality, responsiveness and sustain. This is a natural sustainable product and each skin will be unique to your bodhrán, waiting for you to explore its myriad properties.

Hand Tuning System: Our 8-point hand-tuning system means you can adjust your bodhrán without interrupting your performance; the tuners are easy to grip and super fast to tune. Environmental conditions can be conquered with a quick turn of the key so you can play all night without worrying about humidity or temperature.
Why we use rosewood
Rosewood is a remarkably beautiful hardwood and is quite dense. The more dense the wood the better the resonance. Rosewood is hard enough to allow for a strong earthy resonance, it’s also very good looking and cost effective at the same time. We use Indian Rosewood, a highly sustainable and renewable form of rosewood.
Exemptions for all musical instruments crafted with rosewood now apply. Please visit CITES.org for more information.

Over to Paraic:
"A lot of people may overlook the bodhrán making process and think it's unimportant, however the way a bodhrán is crafted is extremely important. Time and time again, I get calls from people telling me how they have just bought a cheap bodhrán, and after just a few hours of playing they realise that the sound quality is poor and no amount of playing or practising will make it sound good - this is the last thing any musician wants."
