I have taken bodhrán lessons from three other well-known players. Matt has a structured teaching method I found best; his videos on the bodhrán have exercises that notate stroke styles and rhythm to make learning and practice easy. Matt’s love of drumming and technical mastery from his impressive musical training and experience with different styles of drumming make him a highly effective teacher.
Matt has provided us with a comprehensive method for learning the Irish Drum which for the first time gives very specific details on grips and strokes. As a Bodhran player of 36 years, I believe he has brought me into the 21st Century, and salvaged my playing from the physical injuries I encountered. I highly recommend Matt’s method, and technique, oh, and by the way, he has some amazing chops!
As a huge fan of Celtic music, his instructional materials are beneficial to those who want to learn how to play. Matthew Bell turns ordinary listeners into Celtic music enthusiasts!
