Diversify your taiko experience by playing in a Japanese festival-style musical ensemble! As a folk art, there is less emphasis on form and more on expression and learning how to play well together. For a true ensemble experience, students will have the opportunity to learn all musical parts of the ensemble, from odaiko, miyadaiko (chudaiko), shimedaiko, atarigane and fue! Suitable for ages 8 y/o and up.

Instructor: Sho’on Shibata
