Omiyage

Summer is over. Class is settling down again now that we don’t have someone away on vacation every week.
Yesterday the dojo held a workshop on Omiyage the ‘gift’ to the Taiko community at one of the conferences several years ago. We were lucky enough to have a workshop on it from the creator, Shoji Kameda, and the other members of the On Ensemble when they were playing at the new Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in Phoenix.
Eileen Morgan organized the workshop very well, recalling the way that Shoji taught it and helping to break it down clearly for us.
Our homework is to watch the Taikoproject video for familiarity and ideas :)
