2014 New Year's Taiko Resolution - David Wells

My goals this year are to continue to explore melodic composition and to find more and more ways to inspire people to have fun in practice while also developing and strengthening taiko and musical fundamentals (since I know it's hard for everyone to be as jazzed about basic technique as I am ^^v).

Here's a quick sample of me and my friends Maz, Doug, and Jenny practicing a piece I'm developing -- with inspiration from my friend Emily! -- for double (diatonic) marimba and shinobue.

I hope all of you find lots of marvelous music, fabulous friends, and productive practice time in 2014!
