Summer Taiko Institute Wrap-Up 2

Friday, August 14th, 2009

On Ensemble had a fabulous time facilitating the 2009 Summer Taiko Institute!  32 participants from around North America spent three days with us learning On Ensemble’s approach to taiko and a new Free Music taiko piece composed for the community.

Here are a few photos from the three days!

Thank you to(the participants), Darren, Taiko Conference Advisory Board for making STI possible!

Joy, one of our fearless participants, has scanned the score for each part of the song.  The written music is a bit rough, but you can find these scanned images here.

Random videos have been popping up as well!

2009 Summer Taiko Institute

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

sti_postcardWe’re sending out postcards to taiko groups all across the country for the 2009 Summer Taiko Institute soon!  Keep an eye out for them!

The Summer Taiko Institute is a great opportunity to deepen your study of taiko with an intensive three day series of workshops right before the North American Taiko Conference.  The North American taiko community continues to grow by leaps and bounds.  During our tours we’re constantly meeting new taiko groups all across the country.  Even just in Southern California  it’s pretty impossible to keep track of all the new groups.

If you are a taiko player and have never attended a taiko conference I highly recommend it!  It’s a really great opportunity to meet crazy taiko nuts from all around the world. *Yes you are weird but the good news is that you aren’t alone*  If you’re a part of a collegiate taiko group there is also the Annual Collegiate Taiko Invitational which will be hosted by UC Irvine Jodaiko this year in May.
