Beginner Sessions (Sept 2013)

Hey everyone, it’s that time of year for the Pittsburgh Taiko Beginner Sessions! Now’s your chance to try taiko and see what it’s all about.

We’ll be meeting every Saturday in September (that’s Sept. 7, 14, 21, and 28) from 12pm to 2pm at the Winchester Thurston Lower School (555 Morewood Ave).

All four classes are FREE with a valid student ID, or $20 dollars for all other participants.

Stay tuned for more details! If you have any questions at all, email us at pitt.taiko@gmail.com!

Beginner Sessions

Good news everyone! We will be offering a beginner session on January 19th for anyone interested in learning about Taiko drumming. See the ‘Beginner Sessions’ page for more details. Hope to see you there!

Edit (1/28/13): Thank you everyone who showed up, we hope that you all enjoyed your taste of taiko and that you come back to play with us! Please remember that you’re welcome to come and try taiko any time during the year! Send us a message from the ‘Joining’ page and we’ll get right back to you.

Thanksgiving

We would like to wish everyone, wherever you are, a happy Thanksgiving!

For those of you who will be in the Pittsburgh area for this holiday, we will still have practice on both Wednesday and Saturday, and at out usual hours: Wednesday at 7pm and Saturday at 2pm.

EDIT: We will no longer be having practice on the 24th. But we’ll be practicing in spirit!!

A New Season

Fall is approaching, but not yet here. However, its traces can be felt as the temperatures fall and leaves turn to brown.

On the other hand, things are heating up for us – we have a few new performances lined already, with more to come. And we’ve begun beginner lessons once more, reaching out to the local university students. We’ll have one more lesson, this Saturday – for anyone who wants to join us.

And there will be more later, of course.
