New Bodhrán Course | Online Academy of Irish Music

Hi all.  Check out OAIM’s newest course, as well as the 50+ free lessons onsite.  In this course ‘Intermediate Bodhrán Technique’, maestro percussionist Jim Higgins presents a range of rhythmical accompaniments to cover a variety of tune types - Reels, Jigs, Slipjigs, Slides, Polkas and Hornpipes. Over the course of the13 tutorials, Jim discusses and demonstrates many techniques that the learner Bodhrán player can add to his palette of techniques - rolls, backhand motion, the use of syncopation, the ‘Bo Diddley Beat’, and rim techniques to name but a few.

As a drummer, he frequently discusses how to apply what can be done on a drum kit to the Bodhrán. The video tutorials are in a split screen format, so the learner can view the back hand as well as the forehand at all times. Jim Higgins, who hails from Renmore, Galway has been a member of ‘The Stunning’ and ‘The Saw Doctors’. He spent four years touring with ‘River Dance’ and is a member of ‘The Mairtín O’Connor Band’ and also of Donegal band ‘Altan. He has also played with Lunasá, Paul Brady and Christy Moore.
