LATI Recital Prep 2019

I had a really productive summer traveling across Europe and the West Coast. I feel rejuvenated to be back and motivated to try out new ideas in my upcoming courses at Los Angeles Taiko Institute (! This fall will be the first time my adult classes are being featured in the LATI recital. The two series of courses I am offering cover diverse spectrums of taiko techniques — please come join me!

Sundays 1:00-2:45pm
(10-week starting Sep 22)

This course is an introduction to various drills and exercises that enhances drummers’ listening skills, bachi control and dexterity to intergrate the funky polymeter base-beats. A naname movement drill will also be introduced to strengthen soloing vocabulary and help students feel comfortable playing with the polymeter base beat.
