Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

I’ll be giving two workshops at the Kaoru Watanabe Taiko Center this Saturday April 5th. Space is limited and there are just a few spots left for the two workshops:

Lion Chant Workshop 1 : Interlocking Rhythms
This workshop will introduce participants to components of Shoji’s newest piece taiko composition: Lion Chant. Focusing on simple independence this workshop will focus on the timing and technique required for creating dense layers of interlocking rhythms. This workshop will also teach part of the structure of the piece Lion Chant and will lay the foundation for learning and performing the composition. All levels welcome! Limited to 12 participants

Mastering Omiyage
This workshop will focus on refining the technique and concepts behind Omiyage. One of the taiko world’s most exciting and performed compositions Omiyage is now performed by taiko groups throughout the world. Learn to master the subtleties of the movements and composition from the creator himself. No previous experience with Omiyage necessary. Limited to 12 participants

Schedule:
10 am to 1 pm: Lion Chant
1 pm lunch
2 to 5 pm: Omiyage
