2236-29 Street SW
Each workshop is two and a half (2.5) hours and will include information about Taiko – the art of Japanese drumming – including the basics of Taiko (stance, hitting, drills, etc.), drums to practice on, and two pieces of music. The Intermediate workshop will cover more advanced topics such as choregraphy, taiko stage presence, and more complicated rhythms. There will be assistants on hand to provide suggestions and guidance. For those of you interested in an apprenticeship with Midnight Taiko, please remember that taking one of our workshops is a requirement to become an apprentice with the group. Potential apprentices are preferred to take the Intermediate workshop, but it is not required.
Please sign up as soon as possible to reserve your spot as space is limited! Once a spot has been reserved, we require that a cheque or e-mail money transfer be received within one week of your registration in order to confirm your spot. We will provide you with further details and payment information when you register.
