End of our Fall workshop series: Thank you!

We just finished our fall workshop series! Over the course of 7 weeks, Michael, Kathleen, Margaret, Wesley and Katrina learned beta Taiko fundamentals and Matsuri, a traditional Japanese festival song. We were really impressed with their form and musicality, so thank you to everyone who participated in our fall community workshops, and congratulations on your awesome performance!

A special thank you to Hayley and the other Gendo Members for helping out during workshops! If you have any questions about this workshop series, or future opportunities to try out Taiko, please email us at brown.taiko@gmail.com.46516729_1088374087988743_5026185834626285568_n.jpg
