I can recommend HMT, in Takoma Park. You can take lessons from
Jesse Winch of Celtic Thunder there, he has both group and
individual lessons available.
Stream can make you a Bodhran or you can buy one. If you are
going to go to hmt, I would recommend you go over on a saturday
after noon time, Stream is generally there then.
I meant to say buy one already there. Seamus said a lot and
gave excellent advice - he always has knowledgable comments but
if you get him going on Bodhrans, he is even better!
I suggest you look around at what they have at HMT, stay away
from synthetic head drums -personal preference- even though
some of them sound excellent at first blush - because it would
limit your capabilities later.
I strongly encourage you to at least give it a try!!!
Give a shout if I can help!
