Our instructor Yeeman Mui “ManMan” was recently interviewed by ThinkTech Hawaii. She talked about her parent-child taiko program (Taiko Tots and Family Taiko) at TCP and also her philosophy and approach for taiko education. Videos and photos of Taiko Tots were featured in the video too. Be sure to check it out!
We are two months away from our annual student recital Bonenkai, still not too late to join our taiko classes in Fall Session II and perform with us at this wonderful end of the year party!
