Class Description
1)All Level:
This class is for all Levels from beginners to advanced. Learn from Taiko Master Makoto Yamamoto traditional styles and fundamental patterns that can also be utilized for more advanced compositions. Learn patterns that can also be practiced at home without taiko drums. Helpful for students and teachers alike.

2)Intermediate and Higher Level:
This class is for more experienced players and helpful for players already in taiko groups to enhance group repertoires. This class will move faster and focus on a more complex material.

3)Full Class:
This class combines the previous two classes. In addition, Makoto is teaching a finale piece that will be used in next year’s Taiko Summit Colorado 2019 for students who continue to study taiko. This piece includes slanted taiko drum style (with one or two drums). If time allows, Makoto will also teach Shinobue (Japanese bamboo flute).
