All of us who have had the joy of learning or playing taiko with Mark H know that he’s always there to support his fellow taiko players: whether it’s teaching us how to grow our own taiko skills, helping our groups develop a sense of kumidaiko, introducing us to other amazing taiko teachers, or even just spending an evening hanging out as a friend
And now Mark needs our support.
Y’all, CONNECT 2018 is gonna be AMAZING. I’m lucky enough to be one of the behind-the-scenes team members and I can tell you there’s all kinds of cool stuff to look forward to. But as with every new venture, it needs a little bit of help to get off the ground. Especially because we want this to be the first of many awesome events of its type – a small taiko conference built around not only lots of great drumming but ALSO around a shared experience — a time to really connect with and get to know your fellow taiko players.
Even if you can’t make it to CONNECT 2018, you can support us by donating to Mark’s GoFundMe. Help us ensure that we’ll be able to host a future event when you CAN join us. Also, Mark has some pretty cool “thank you” gifts on offer for those who can give a little more (hello, 1 hour private session with Mark – redeemable any time in the future!).
If you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Mark H … and remember that there are still spots available for CONNECT 2018, so if you’re still thinking about registering, DO IT! We can’t wait to see you there!
Thanks in advance for your support, from all of us here at Team Mark H!
