Hello friends of LATI and the Taiko Community,
I am here in Spain touring with the legendary Chieko Kojima of Kodo, assisting her as a taiko musician and translator. The first 2-weeks have been spent in Barcelona where Chieko collaborated with a local contemporary dancer, and the next two in Madrid where we will be performing alongside a local group called Seiwa Taiko.

Although far away, I’m quite excited to announce my next set of 12-week courses to begin March 27!
Along with the usual fundamental courses, this upcoming term is designed to keep students moving forward with their taiko studies. We’ll be introducing a Youth Intermediate class, bringing back Dokokara, and my very first Matsuri Solo Development class!
Please visit Learn Taiko! to see the full list of offerings and to find out more about each class. I've also attached in this blog an easy-to-see Weekly Schedule to help you find the class that fits well with your schedule.
If you’re unsure of which classes to take, want to bring a friend, or see if taiko is something you want to pursue, come to one of our Free Taiko Primer classes offered throughout the week prior to the Courses starting.
I’ll be seeing all of you in a few weeks!
