Bodhrán & percussion is the heartbeat of Irish music. Rithim na nGael, through our workshop offers participants the opportunity under the experienced eye of some of the best bodhrán players in the world (KILA) to get their hands on an Irish bodhrán.

Music and in particular rhythm have a powerful impact. It is important that children have the opportunity to experience, learn and express themselves through the creative arts. Áras Chrónáin and KILA have spent many years fostering this ethos in our music classes, workshops and performances.

  • Participants will learn various ways of how to get different sounds from the bodhrán in this fun and very entertaining workshops.
