This is the perfect course for new taiko players. Written and popularized by San Francisco Taiko Dojo's Seiichi Tanaka, Renshuu is possibly the most well-known kumidaiko piece in North America. The piece focuses on the fundamental skills of form, dynamic control, and timing. LATI's version is based on Shoji Kameda's (On Ensemble) challenging version of the piece, applicable to experienced players as well, utilizing kuchishoga vocalizations, dramatic tempo swings, and an exciting musical structure.
Note that there is no class June 10 for North American Taiko Conference or July 29. The course term has been extended by two weeks to still include the full, 12 classes.
