Back to Class!

We are back to class this week. Beginners at 7pm, improvers at 7.30pm.

Dee and John have been training hard over the summer with visits to the Shisei Taiko Camp in Buckinghamshire and also to Mugenkyo to work with Art Lee. This was a real challenge with fast, hard and energetic exercises including his "stairmaster" technique to build right and left hand co-ordination. We took a lot away from the workshop, and some ideas will no doubt appear in class. You can see more about this in Mugenkyo's newsletter - if you haven't signed up for it, then you can do so on their website (see right).

Art Lee's Tokara
We went to Tokara's performance in Exeter which was stunning, and highly recommended. Art's group will be back in the UK next year so don't miss it. We were lucky enough to have a workshop with him there too where we learnt the very enjoyable traditional "Galloping Horses".

Suitably inspired, we are looking forward to another year's drumming.
