Taiko Drills 101: Outdoor Workshop
October 25 @ 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Join us for TAIKO DRILLS 101!Don’t let the title fool you! In this workshop, Mark H will introduce a variety of drills to help you keep up your taiko mojo. We’ll learn simple ways to practice basic techniques as well as more challenging exercises that will test your timing, focus, and coordination. We’ll also explore drills centered on kumidaiko (playing as a group), because we know that is the main thing we’ve all been missing during COVID – the chance to connect with our fellow human beings. Whether you have been busily practicing at home or haven’t had the time or energy to think about taiko since March, we know that EVERYONE is ready to hit a taiko. And we have found a great outdoor space at Glen Echo Park where we can play safely. Before you register, 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!). This workshop is open to anyone who has taken a full series of our Adult Recreational Taiko Class or who has equivalent experience. Not sure if this workshop is right for you? Contact Mark H and he’ll help you figure it out! This is one of THREE open taiko workshops happening this fall at Glen Echo Park. Because space is limited, we ask that everyone help us out by sharing the taiko wealth:
- You can sign up for this workshop OR Taiko Drills 201 (on Saturday, Nov 7).
- If you’re looking for more taiko time, you can also register for our Introductory Taiko Workshop (on Sunday, Nov 15).
