Yukai Daiko’s Taiko Camp

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Kris and I both taught workshops this past weekend in UCLA at Yukai Daiko’s Taiko Camp.  Every year, before the school year starts, Yukai holds a taiko camp to which Kris and I both taught at last year as well.  This year, I did one of my newer workshops called “How to Kiai Confidently While Playing Taiko”.  Kiai are hard because it’s another thing added to the form of Taiko.  You’ve got your stance, you’ve got your beats, you’ve got your movements, and then your kiai or vocal shouts.  It was fun, but my voice was all tired from the day before at Chico!  I was very impressed with Yukai this past year and I’m excited to see their advancements this year.  Special thanks to Jessica and Isabella for organizing everything and to Danny for the following picture.Yukai09

Workshop With Yukai Daiko

Workshop With Yukai Daiko

Kris and I held workshops yesterday with Yukai Daiko. Yukai has always been so supportive to On Ensemble and TAIKOPROJECT. Thanks to Yuta Kato, the founder of Yukai and former member of both On and TP, they have always been there for us when we need help at our concerts. So, in return for those favors, we hope to give workshops to them from time to time. Thank you Yukai!
