Since September we have been learning how to play the Bodhrán. We were soooo lucky with our teacher Junior Davey, he is AMAZING!!
He showed us lots of new skills and tricks.
The bodhrán is made of goat skin and timber. Every Wednesday from September to December Junior came in and we would play the bodhrán together. Every week we improved, and by the end of November we were ready to put music with our instruments.
Ms. Golden taught us the song “My Irish Molly O” in class and then we would sing it and play the bodhrán with Junior when he came in. He was so impressed with us. On his last day with us we did a class performance for Mr. Colreavy. We were sooo proud of ourselves.
We do have a recording of our performance but we just have to wait for a little update on the website before we can upload videos. Watch this space!
For now take a look at some pictures of us in action. We love Music Generation and can’t wait to start again soon.
Thanks for checking in, slán for now.
