BodhránExpert Platinum Membership

(Level 1)


Have you been struggling along by yourself for a while, but now stuck at a plateau with your bodhrán playing?

Easily go from being stuck in a Rhythm Rut to becoming better at bodhrán than you could EVER imagine with a method that makes learning so simple & fun you won’t even realize you’ve gone from ‘Drum Owner’ to ‘Musician’ until other musicians are asking you to attend local sessions or join their band on stage.

 Main Program

  • 45 Never Seen Before Video Lessons
  • Audio Recordings of all Video Lessons 
  • Written Transcripts from each lesson with the easy to follow Bodhrán Notation 
  • Over two hours of detailed instruction

You'll also receive the following:

Bonus Module 1 - OffBeat Reel Rhythm

  • In this module you will learn all about the Offbeat Reel Rhythm, how to use it in tunes.
  • I originally planned to include one tune to play along with, but got so carried away during recording that we ended up putting together a four tune set.
  • This is a 9 video module totalling over 1 hr 37 minutes.


Bonus Module 2 - Mastering Triplets and Rolls

In this lesson you will learn how to master Kerry style triplets and rolls once and for all.

This is a complete blueprint to cracking what many find to be one of the most frustrating rudiments to learn and control.

In this very detailed lesson you'll learn how to use triplets in the score for the very popular 'Toss The Feathers'.

Five videos for another 85 minutes of quality instruction.

Bonus Module 3 - Slig Jigs

This module is all about the Slip Jig. Not only will we cover various Slip Jig Rhythms, but we will learn a score to use it in AND I'll also teach you how to change between 9/8 and 6/8 time when the tune calls for it.

You will also learn what to play along to Rocky Road To Dublin.

Three videos totalling over 40 minutes of instruction. 

Bonus Module 4 - Waltzes, Polkas & Marches

This module will cover an introduction to Waltzes, Polkas and Marches.

You will learn suggested beatings to play along to the featured tunes and much more. Includes O'Sullivan's March, John Ryan's Polka and Fanny Power Waltze.

Five more great videos totalling 1 hr 14 minutes.

Bonus Module 5 - Intermediate & Advanced Jig Rhythms

This module will cover intermediate and advanced jig rhythms and a really neat tune to use them in.

This lesson really makes you think outside the jig box and see the cool possibilities beyond the Mother Of All Jig Rhythms.

Five more videos of intense jig work will keep you busier than the 54 minutes of video time.

As in all the modules the notes will really support you here, especially the 30 pages for this module alone. 

Bonus Module 6 - The Bodhrán Solo

This module will cover how to piece together a bodhrán solo.

Here I will teach you two sections of one of my own solos. First we'll cover the 'Jig Fanfare' and then what I call my 'Salsa' section.

Four videos and almost another 100 minutes of video content in this module itself.

. . . and you'll also get

Bonus #7 - YouTube Bodhrán Hornpipe Series

All 10 videos of my 'Bodhrán Hornpipe Series' from my YouTube series are also now uploaded to the membership site. The accompanying pdf features the four separate featured rhythms and the full score for Dunphy's Hornpipe.

BONUS #8 - Graduation Bonus

I have recently added even more content to the Platinum course. The 'Graduation Bonus' is surprise bonus from me.

Now, this doesn't mean that once you do this you're done learning. It's just really great material that I couldn't hold back from giving you.

It's some top-end style rhythms that I know you'll all fall in love with. We even learn a cool score for our very own 'Platinum Reel' and we get to spend almost another fun hour together

BONUS #9 - Big Book Of Bodhrán

All the transcripts and notation from the Main Program and the first Six Bonus Modules have been compiled together into one larger, consecutive file of almost 400 pages to make the up the 'Big Book Of Bodhrán' pdf.

BONUS #10 - Tune Book

Here you'll find all the tunes we cover in the Platinum program in an advanced PDF that has clickable audio files right on the page so you can practice along, looking at the sheet music, and choose whichever tempo you want to play along with. Of course, you can also print it off.

BONUS #11 - Rhythm Booklet

Your Rhythm Booklet contains 300 RHYTHMS of various time signatures. Exercises up to 184 also include audios at six different tempos to practise along with right on the page. 

It also have fillable boxes for you to enter your starting base and current tempo to help you track your progress.

BONUS #12 - Single End Triplet Workshop

In this special workshop I break everything down and use on-screen notation to de-mystify the different ways to play single-end ‘triplets’.

And don’t worry, you don’t have to know how to read music to follow this easy notation.
