The tutor tells you really basic things such as how to hold the bodhran and how to hold the tipper/beater. He covers simple reel and jig times. All lovely and clear and useful, though I had picked up this level of info from instructional videos on youtube. I was really eager to take the next step - but it seemes like the tutor took a leap rather than a step. He went into complicated beats and time signatures, demonstrated at full speed, rather than slowing down to help the learner pick up on the beat and copy it. There are several opportunities to play along with musicians, but if you aren't already musicial, you may need more advice/explanation than simply "Now remember, listen to the msicians"! I gave it my best shot but ended up feeling bewildered and incompetent.
I'm afraid I'm going back to youtube, where there are videos of people playing the rhythms slowly so that I can listen, copy, practice. When I have done that for a while, and developed my general knowledge and understanding of playing music, I will come back to this dvd and possibly get more benefit from it.
I found this to be first class, taking the rank amateur from a sensible starting point [how to hold the instrument], through to playing with the band. The presenter obviously knows his stuff and explains it all very well. You'll even be able to recognise whether you're listening to a jig or a reel!
All in all a very good DVD at a good price. You'll not be disappointed.
All in all, a very good buy - go on treat yourself to very rewarding past-time!
Stefan Hannigan is a good teacher with a straightforward delivery and easy methods.
The Playalong section is really helpful to learn to play along with a good Irish traditional band. The musicians are good and the tunes are a grand example of Irish jigs, hornpipes, and reels.
Thanks, Stefan for a great set of lessons.
Good value for money...!
