Domo arigatou gozaimashita! ありがとうございました!
It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s the perfect time to say THANK YOU to all of the wonderful folks who are part of the Mark H Taiko community!
Thank you to all of our wonderful students, to all of the amazing members of Miyako Taiko, to all of the phenomenal peeps who attended and supported CONNECT 2018, to all of the rockstar groups who played with us at our Sakura Taiko Takeover at the Tidal Basin (on a ridiculously cold day!), and to every single person who’s taken a workshop or attended a performance with us in 2018!
And what’s the very best way to express our gratitude? Well … what could possibly be better than bringing you lots of great taiko in 2019?
We’re kicking off 2019 with a weekend of FOUR awesome workshops!
Whether you’re a local or from out of town, it’s a great opportunity to hang with your fellow taiko players and jump start your practice before getting back to your regular post-holiday routine.
Saturday, January 5
Shin-En 101 Workshop (2 – 4:30pm PLUS a bonus hour from 5 – 6pm!)
Learn (or review!) the basics of this simple, dynamic song!
Shin-En Fue Workshop (4:30 – 6pm)
If you’re a fue player but don’t know the melody that is an integral part of this song, now is the time to learn!
Sunday, January 6
Advanced Shin-En Workshop (10 – 1pm)
Kick your “Shin-En” up a notch by finessing your choreography, learning new parts, & more!
Bachi Maneuvers Workshop (2 – 5pm)
Experience Mark’s most often-requested workshop & add some flair to your new year!
But wait! There’s more…
We’re ready for new (and returning!) students!
Have a friend or family member who wants to try taiko? Our next Introductory Taiko Workshop is coming up on Sunday, January 13 and our Winter Recreational Taiko Class begins on Sunday, January 27! (pssssst, remember that experiences are scientifically proven to be better gifts than things! Want to give the gift of taiko? Contact Mark H and we’ll hook you up with a sweet gift card!)
And we’re excited about our Sakura Taiko Takeover!
Join us on Sunday, March 31 among the cherry blossoms for another Sakura Taiko Takeover at the Tidal Basin: a full day of taiko performances, featuring groups from up and down the East Coast! Does your group want to participate? Stay tuned – more info coming soon on the Mark H Taiko Facebook page!
