I've been playing bodhran for about 4 and a half years. I'm in a Milwaukee, WI based Irish trad band: athas. (www.myspace.com/athas) I'm the 2006 adult midwest bodhran champ and I also teach beginning bodhran at the Milwaukee Irish Fest Center.
Amy--how is the summer gig season going for you guys??? I played a gig with two other guys about a month ago at a little venue in Portland, ME--lots of fun--we may even decide to do it again. It was my first non seisuin gig.
Hi Amy: We hold an Irish arts camp and classes over the summer, and bring over an artist in residence when we can. I've been asked to teach beginning bodhran this summer, but I've never taught anything before. Any advice for a novice teacher? Go raibh maith agat,
Nice bio! I teach music aswell. At the time being, I teach keyboard and piano to little kids, and make some nice side cash and have fun doing it. Anyways, it would be nice having you in my group reserved for musicians, "General Musician Chat". Cheers!
Hi Amy. It is Daniel from Milwawkee Irish Fest School. Hope you are doing well. When you get a chance, check out my little Irish group Rowan Tree. Recording is on my Live Ireland spot. We are touring Ireland in May for the second time. Peace, and good drumming to ya.
