“Best Ever Family Gathering”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Our Family booked the Bodhran Experinece on our visit to Dublin and it was our best idea ever, a truly wonderful Irish Experience. We laughed and played the Irish Drum with Helen and learned all about jigs and reels. Would recommend this for any group visiting Ireland. Helen thank you for our best memories of Ireland, we will treasure them forever.

“Must be part of your Ireland experience”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

As part of my study abroad experience the institution I'm studying abroad with booked us a Bodhran experience. Helen is wonderful and very spirited! This is a lot of fun and I learned a little about Irish history. Our session was almost a month ago and we still talk about how wonderful it was. Well done!

“An "Experience" most worth it”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Helen is a marvelous teacher, making learning to play the bodhran both fun and feasible. Her methods of both group play and individual practice allow for a lot of play time and quality instruction. I enjoyed Helen as a person, and found her teaching more than adequate, even though our time was limited. I learned not only how to play the bodhran, but I also learned about Irish culture, history, and music in general, all in one enjoyable experience.

“A wonderful Christmas surprise!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We were lucky enough to meet Helen in Florida on vacation. On Christmas morning she visited us and brought the Bodhran Experience to us! Our kids dropped their Kindle HDXs like hot potatoes and fought over the Bodhran. Brilliant teacher. If you are lucky enough to go to Ireland have this experience! We certainly will.

“Give it a try - and you do not want to stop it....”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Thousands of visitors enjoy every year the pleasure of listening to the rich culture of music in Ireland - but only few get a chance to get involved actively with an instrument - to experience....
It is a great opportunity, to get a grip on a Bodhran and 1 hour of enjoyable and patient teaching ( many thanks again to Elaine!) . All very friendly and uncomplicated! This is a very nice concept, which Helen has developed, to share the joy and energy of Bodhran drumming! Also the Comhaltas headquarters is a very nice place (also easy to reach from the city center by train)...and now ....being back home......trying to get a bodhran drum to continue.....
