Eien Hunter-Ishikawa Workshops and Private Lessons

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

After our On Ensemble performances this weekend at the Getty Center Eien will be giving a series of workshops and private lessons at the Los Angeles Taiko Institute. He’ll be teaching two workshops: Small Drum Technique and an Introduction to Edo-Bayashi and will be available for private lessons.

Eien is one of the most technically skilled and musical taiko players in the North American community. He is also a great teacher and his depth of knowledge and experience is a great resource for those who are into taiko and want take their playing to the next level. If you are into taiko and live in SoCal this is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best! Check out the LATI website for a complete list of Eien’s workshops and private lesson availability.

On Ensemble taiko class! “Performance Intensive”

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Hello all!  I am very pleased to announce an exciting new taiko course I’m organizing for December: the Performance Intensive!

Over the course of three sessions, we’ll work on form, musicality, and practice technique as we collaboratively compose a new taiko piece!

Participants first work with me one on one to determine personalized goals for the three weeks.  Parts are then tailored to individual needs.  The session culminates in a real performance, with a real audience!

The course will be engaging, challenging, and fun!  Participants come away with directed feedback, experience composing, and a new piece ready for reuse!

Open to all taiko players.  I’m really looking forward to this fast-paced, fun series!  Join us!
