All children love to play with drums. Not only is it fun, it’s also great for their development. A Bodhrán circle can teach children mutual respect, co-operation, listening, co-ordination and sensitive movement, as well as developing qualities like perseverance, self-discipline and mental agility.
Our ‘Little Buzzer’ bodhrán workshops are a fantastic way to get children’s creative energy flowing and fuel their enthusiasm for the learning process. Our workshops expose children to a positive and empowering environment, providing them with a refreshing break from regular schoolwork.
Listening and Responding:
We offer workshops for kids of all ages, primary school level right up to the senior cycle.
Once-off workshops lasts approximately 60-80 minutes.
Guaranteed to bring joy and happiness to your school, The Bodhrán Buzz will leave children with a sense of achievement, success and connection.
The Bodhrán Buzz also offers full term courses with the possibility of a performance at the end of the term for parents and teachers. Courses can be tailored to fit each individual school’s needs, depending on the length of the classes you would like and how many weeks the school would like the course to run for.
