All of us here at Mark H Taiko love summer … but we also can’t wait for fall because it means the return of taiko classes. So if you are ready to hit some big drums … READ ON! We have a busy season filled with LOTS of taiko ahead of us!
Not sure which of our classes is right for you? Just ask Mark H and he’ll help you decide which class is the right fit!
Sunday, September 10 AND Sunday, September 17, from 5 – 8 pm
If you’ve never tried taiko before, or if you’re looking for a refresher on your taiko fundamentals, join us for one of our TWO upcoming Introductory Taiko Workshops and find out what it feels like to play a drum with your whole body. This workshop is a prerequisite for our Adult Rec Class, so if you want to join that class, be sure you signed up for one of these two workshops FIRST!
Adult Rec Class
Sundays from 5 – 7 pm, beginning on September 24
As always, our Adult Rec Class is a great opportunity for taiko players at all levels to get together and have fun playing taiko with a bunch of other amazing people. Like our Intro Workshops, this class usually sells out FAST, so don’t wait to register!
Sundays from 2 – 4 pm, beginning on September 24
If you took Otoha Asano’s All-Levels Shime-daiko workshop last month and you’re ready to up your taiko mojo, join us for the next session of our Skills Class! There’s nothing like working on your shime technique to improve your all-around taiko playing and to help you understand the songs in your personal taiko repertoire inside and out.
Tuesdays from 8 – 10 pm, beginning on September 27
Thanks to Otoha Asano’s amazing workshops this summer, we know many of you are REALLY eager to keep learning Odaiko! If that’s YOU, grab a spot in our Styles Class this fall. This powerful style is what many people think of when they hear the word “taiko” … and, as anyone who has ever tried playing odaiko can tell you, it’s a challenging and exhilarating experience.
Plus: Fall Recital!
Sunday, November 19 @ 7:00 pm
As always, our classes will wrap up with an informal, family-friendly recital. Please save the date and join us to see loads of fun taiko! The recital is a great way to kick off the holiday season and celebrate our whole Mark H Taiko community. More details on the recital will be posted here soon – stay tuned!
We can’t wait to see everyone this fall!
