In an ideal world, every taiko player would have the opportunity to study with LOTS of different teachers to get a variety of perspectives on the art and practice of taiko. This often involves a lot of logistical challenges and taiko people are busy folx! So here at Mark H Taiko, one of our goals is to bring those amazing teachers here to the East Coast and take care of some of those logistical challenges for you!
And sometimes that means bringing a taiko artist into the DC area for a series of workshops or a taiko “intensive,” so that taiko players in the area are able to spend a little extra time learning and getting to know some of the awesome innovators of modern kumidaiko. These are our Mark H Taiko Artists in Residence!
