Introductory Taiko Workshop at Glen Echo Park
April 4 @ 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
Have fun, get a good workout, and meet some awesome people … all while hitting big drums with big sticks!
Sign up for Mark H Taiko’s Introductory Taiko Workshop!Taiko is a dynamic art form based on traditional Japanese drumming practiced all over the world. This workshop is designed to introduce the basics of taiko technique, practice of kumidaiko (ensemble drumming), awareness of ki (energy), use of koe (voice), history and philosophy — all while having a good time! No experience necessary, but come ready for a workout! This introductory taiko workshop is for ages 13 & up. Drums are provided. Please look carefully over our outdoor workshop policies so you know all the protocols we are taking for the safety and comfort of your fellow taiko players (and your instructor!). Register and pay online with School of Musical Traditions! Register Here or call (240) 690-1910 Register early — our workshops have been very popular and often fill up! Because space is limited, we ask that everyone help us out by sharing the taiko wealth. You can sign up for this workshop OR our other Introductory Taiko Workshop (on Sunday, March 28). This workshop (or previous taiko experience) is a prerequisite for Mark’s Recreational Taiko Classes. We are hoping to get an outdoor Rec Class going soon!
