Jasper Cottle


Bodhrán lessons

The bodhrán is the heartbeat of Irish music.

  • how to accompany jigs, reels, hornpipes, and polkas

  • how to come up with your own rhythms that fit your favorite tunes

  • how to make your drum sound great

  • Irish session etiquette so that you're welcomed by other musicians

Meet in-person with Jasper in southern New Hampshire to learn:

First lesson is free!

Dust off that drum you've had in your closet for years and start making music!

No drum? No problem! Borrow a bodhrán during your lessons and find out what to look for when you're ready to buy your own.
