After a long, cold winter, we are gearing up for the summer season at the Taiko Center. The events and performances really start to pick up in May and June. You can look for the Taiko Center Community Drummers at the finish line for Northville's Kona Run on June 8. Raion Taiko will be in Holland this weekend (May 18) and at the Hamburg Family Festival on June 15. In July, Raion Taiko will head Up North to Alpena and Lake City.
The Taiko Center will not be offering any introductory taiko classes again until September, but we will run a class that is "beginner friendly": Miyake Daiko. Miyake Daiko is a simple piece, in that it really only has one phrase that is repeated over and over. Playing this phrase with proper form, however, is a challenge for even experienced players. For 10 weeks over the summer, we will introduce this piece to students. Anyone who wants to have fun and give their legs a good workout, this class is for you. No experience required. Just send an email to email@example.com to register or for more information.
