I’m so delighted to finally learn the bodhran and Ruairi is the most incredible teacher. I have never had lessons via Skype before, but it has worked out brilliantly. Its so difficult to learn this instrument as there are no teachers here, but now I’m setup and ready to go!

Ruairi has been brilliant for our son ( aged 11) who struggled a lot to find confidence in his music making after a couple of years fighting against piano lessons. In just a few years, he has developed a passion for percussion and achieved a distinction in his Grade 4 exam!
