Wadaiko Workshops ~ Feb 11th & 12th
Taiko Master from Sado Island [Japan] in Perth
FANTASTIC Taiko Experience Opportunity, right here in PERTH
More Details @ https://tinyurl.com/t9ropyr
Taiko Master from Sado Island, ]-Yosuke-[ facilitates workshops where experienced taiko players and beginners alike can grow and notice their own growth.
His workshops aren’t about learning through imitation. Instead, they focus on the originality of each individual. Yosuke’s strength lies in teaching people that taiko players don’t need to fit into any certain mould.
Through his workshops, he shares his vast experience and passion for taiko. People may think he is teaching is own style of drumming, when in fact Yosuke’s workshops are an opportunity for participants to uncover their own personal style.
Taiko players often get injured but Yosuke has never had an injury. He says that’s because he wants to make sure he can continue playing taiko with power and grace. According to Yosuke, the safe way to play taiko and the beautiful way to play taiko are connected.
