In this video, Brian will teach you how to play the bodhrán and other percussion instruments using common household implements. With the help of two talented little dogs, Mollie and Silo, Brian will take you on a tour of the instruments you can almost always find in a drummer's house.

Ask permission before you grab the pots and pans!!
