There will be plenty of opportunities to drum with us online in 2021! We’ll start the year off with a TAIKO 101 WORKSHOP scheduled for Wednesday, January 13, 2021 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. It will be led by three Portland Taiko drummers using a variety of live-virtual activities and prerecorded videos. And don’t worry–you don’t need a big taiko drum at home to take this online workshop. You can set up a pillow or cushion on a folding chair and use drumsticks or two grocery-bags. Watch the video here, starting at 1:40.
For those of you who have already taken our Taiko 101 workshop or have some experience with taiko, our winter courses will begin in mid-January 2021 with details to be announced soon. We anticipate offering the beginning-level class MOVEMENT AND MATSURI and our advanced BEYOND BASICS. Stay tuned for information!
