Anna Colliton Class Description and Bio
In Advanced Bodhrán, we learn to further enhance our jigs and reels with ornamentation, tonal variation, and syncopation, and also work on various approaches to other types of tunes including hornpipes, slip jigs, hop jigs, slides, and polkas. The class will explore elements of “top end” style bodhrán playing according to the wishes of the class. I’ll also provide both written notation and short videos (which will be posted for students to download after the week is over) for each topic. The goal of the class is to help students become versatile and sensitive players who are able to accompany tastefully in whatever style they choose, and students are strongly encouraged to bring questions, ideas, favorite recordings, and topics of discussion to class – we’re going to have fun!
