Naname, Small Drum Form: Jack Bazaar Ji-uchi and Intro to Omiyage (YK13)

Wednesdays, 8:00-9:45pm

First Class: Wed, September 28, 2016
Teacher(s): Yuta Kato, David Wells
Room: Large Classroom

In Kumidaiko (ensemble drumming) the shimedaiko often serves as the base-keeper, similar to the drummer in a band, keeping the ensemble together.
Shime playing not only involves dexterity and skill, but also consistency in tempo, strength, and thoughtfulness to allow the other big drums to shine.

In this class we will focus on what we think are crucial elements for good jiuchi (basebeat)
1. Technique/Dexterity/Sound
2. Consistency/Reliability/Tempo Keeping
3. Application/Thoughtfulness
