Happy St. Patrick's Day

Little Irish drumming for you. I apologize, it's almost impossible to record one's self playing an instrument and not look weird. I am having fun learning how to play the bodhran though!  My goal is to be able to play while the students are dancing tomorrow. I have some dances planned! Woo Hoo!

You're great! How are you learning to play? Lessons? Video? Internet? Share, please!

One of the teachers who took Orff with me at Eastman plays and he showed me a little bit. Then I watched Celtic Woman, and I practiced playing with the Chimes of Dunkirk and Listen to the Mocking bird.

I just play what I think sounds good. I don't know if I'm doing it "right". You can duplicate with a hand drum and a stick.

YES!! It's great! Plus, you look like you are having so much fun!!! I'd love to learn how to play!

This is SO cool!!! Wow! Where did you get the drum? Some hand drums have tiny holes that you can loop a strap through for the "handle" on the back. How did it go today? I can't wait to hear more.
