Join us for a beginner Taiko class with Grammy-Award-winning Taiko Master Koji Nakamura August 19 at 12:30pm at Shumei International Institute.
“Taiko” is the Japanese word for drum. Taiko drumming captures our attention and brings us into the present through the powerful and invigorating sounds it creates. By banishing thoughts of the past and the future, Taiko clears our minds and lightens our hearts. Taiko harmoniously combines physical discipline, aesthetic sense, and spiritual cultivation. Taiko’s dramatic body movements and dynamic rhythms are exhilarating to both eyes and ears! But most importantly, the spirit of Taiko is sure to awaken and renew the spirit within us.
Everyone is welcome to this class ages 6 and up, Friday, August 19 at 12:30 pm. Please register on our website www.shumeicrestone.org, call the office at 256-5284 or email email@example.com. We will meet at the Shumei office to begin. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for those 18 and under. The registration deadline is August 15. We look forward to sharing this transformative art with our community.
