After a full season of Zoom rehearsals, we are finally back in the dojo and kicking off a new performance season with new recruits!
Earlier this month we hosted two Public Recruitment Workshops in which participants got to hear a brief history of Japanese drumming and then were introduced the fundamentals of playing taiko through demonstrations and guided exercises. See below for some highlights from our two workshops!
Coming out of our recruitment workshops, we are excited to welcome seven new trainees into our 2021-2022 trainee class. Our new trainees bring a diverse set of experiences, with some who’ve played taiko before and others who learned for the first time at our workshops. Now they will be joining our rehearsals for the next few months to continue learning our technique and repertoire. We look forward to shaping our trainees into a new generation of Soh Daiko performers!
