I’m in the process of gathering some of my students’ favorite bodhran videos for you to listen to and learn from as well as playing along with. So, no more excuses for not knowing what to practice during your 10 Minutes A Day Practice Challenge.
I’ll be posting more videos here on a regular basis so please send me the link to any of your own favourites in the comment section below.
You know I love to hear from you so feel free to leave a comment about any of the videos or how you’re doing in your bodhran journey.
