Why do I play taiko? It comes from a desire to connect: to my heritage, to the drum, to the people I play with and play for. Now, after 20 years, this idea has become the guiding principle not just for my taiko school but also for an exciting new conference happening next August.I invite you to join us and discover how you CONNECT to this art form and to your fellow taiko drummers. Experience four unique workshops with four incredible instructors that will provide the framework for us to explore, to play, and to share.
