Taiko Communication Workshop
January 4 @ 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM$50
Connect with your fellow taiko players … register for Mark H’s Taiko Communication Workshop!
This unique workshop emphasizes the connection and communication among taiko players, which also provides groundwork for improvisation and soloing! We’ll do a variety of fun exercises designed to increase your skills in interacting with, listening to, and being aware of your fellow taiko drummers as you play. We will explore listening skills, passing energies, vocabulary expansion, and other aspects of soloing within a kumidaiko context.
Open to anyone who has taken two full series of Mark’s Rec Class or has equivalent experience (about 6 months).
Kick off 2020 with a whole weekend of taiko!
This is one of THREE awesome workshops happening this weekend! You can also join us for the Katsugi Okedo Workshop (Saturday, 4 January from 12:00 – 3:00pm) and the Intro to Naname Uchi Workshop (Sunday, 5 January from 1pm – 4:00pm).
We’ll also schedule some fun social time on Saturday evening so those coming in from out of town can enjoy a little extra camaraderie with their fellow taiko drummers. What a great way to celebrate the new year!
