Come and learn the powerful art of Taiko (Japanese drumming)! Taiko is a comprehensive art form that includes elements of music, dance, martial arts, theater, and team sports. No experience or musical ability is necessary. We will cover everything from the history of the art form to learning an entire song! Students will also learn about the Japanese culture and its values of respect, spirit, perseverance, and teamwork. Kristy Oshiro is an artistic staff member of Sacramento Taiko Dan, Creative Director of Placer Ume Taiko, and has over 20 years of Taiko experience. Her training began at age 9 with Kona Daifukuji Taiko in Kona, Hawai'i. From 2001-2007 she toured professionally with Portland Taiko in Oregon. Kristy has a Bachelor's Degree in music performance in percussion from Portland State University and teaches Taiko workshops at the Northwest Regional Taiko Gathering and the North American Taiko Conference. She also tours nationally and internationally with Jodaiko and Taikoza. Ages 9+ welcome. Contact ARC to sign up and for meeting location (Coloma area).
