A kind welcome to our class
Charlie Graham is a teacher and maker of bodhrans who realised that the instrument was not given its due respect within traditional music, as it was believed anyone could play it.
Charlie decided to address this and developed a method of notes, skills and grades to encourage bodhran players to reach their full potential and achieve respect for this instrument and its role with other musicians.
Bodhran players should never stop developing their musical ability as they are the heartbeat of music.
Past students have become world champions or players of high standards and achievements.
Through his efforts, over the past thirty years in teaching, the bodhran has become a respected individual instrument in the world of music.
