Our purpose is to elevate spiritual sentiment in the audience through the drumming sound of a traditional Japanese percussion instrument known as "taiko." Our drumming serves as a bridge among different cultures for global understanding beyond language and words. Through drumming, we are able to enhance our spiritual growth.
Makoto is a fundamental character trait that includes such higher qualities as sincerity, truthfulness, altruism, reliability, and integrity. Makoto has a broad, yet profound, meaning that cannot be summarized in just one or two words because its meaning varies according to specific context. A person has makoto when his actions are in alignment with his words and ideals, and these words emulate the basic foundation of our drumming.
Makoto Taiko offers classes for those who are interested in playing taiko. We have tryouts twice a year during which we accept new students.
These tryouts provide a taste of Makoto Taiko's practice sessions. No experience in taiko is needed to participate.
We have two dates that you can RSVP for: Tuesday, July 16 and Tuesday, July 23 at 5:30pm. Sessions are $10 per person and RSVP is required to attend these sessions (choose one).
