Introduction to the Art of Taiko for K-1

It was wonderful to be back on Punahou campus to work with the K-1 community. I taught 12 different classes in two days, with 8 classes for 30 mins each and 4 classes for 45 mins each.


It was such a wonderful experience to try out the program. The workshops utilize visual media, songs, movement, and classroom instruments. The students and teachers respond very positively. The music teacher also thought that the 30-min program was just enough to introduce the art form and spark their interest. The students also get to experience a little bit of hands-on music-making exercise.

It’s been almost 4th months since I moved to Torrance, LA. I certainly miss Hawaii a lot. Hopefully I will get to visit again soon. Looking forward to bring this program to other schools as well!
