Level up your skills with Mark H’s signature taiko anthem: “Shin-En“!
About this class
This 8-week class focuses on helping you develop your taiko mojo! Want to broaden the range of what you can express through taiko? Ready to expand your taiko abilities? Then this is the class for you!
Have you ever seen 20-50 taiko players get up to play the high-energy piece, Shin-En at the end of a MHT event and wanted to learn it? Here’s your chance! Using the rhythms and choreography unique to Shin-En, we will aim to improve fundamental techniques including stance, bachi control, form and kumidaiko – all while learning this modern festival song.
Please note that this is NOT a beginners’ class. The pacing will be faster and the expectations higher than in Rec Class. Whether you are new to playing this awesome song or you’ve been playing it for years, we guarantee you’ll find this class both fun and challenging!
Prerequisite: At least 2 series of our Rec Class. Want to know if this class is a good fit for you? Just ask Mark H!
