Private Bodhran Teacher

Bodhran:
The bodhrán is an Irish frame drum ranging from 10 to 26 in in diameter. One or two crossbars, sometimes removable, may be inside the frame, but this is increasingly rare on modern instruments. Some professional modern bodhráns integrate mechanical tuning systems similar to those used on drums found in drum kits. It is usually with a hex key that the bodhrán skins are tightened or loosened depending on the atmospheric conditions. The student will learn hand techniques, rhythms, songs, and how to tune the drum head.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

I played the bodhran for years in a very popular Los Angeles based Irish Folk Band. There are so many aspects to this beautiful instrument: different rhythms, different positions for your left hand inside the drum. It's a beautiful instrument!

I thought I was pretty good at excel! Well, Judi was able to show me that I was only using 10% of my Excel brain. I had NO idea what I could do with Excel to make my life easier until I learned from Judi. I'm sure I will be using her again! Thanks!!!
