A little over a year ago, chriso and I started taking Taiko Classes.
We've taken 5 7-10 weeks sessions and 2 3-5 week sessions. Going on Tuesdays or Thursdays as our schedule permits.
We've made a lot of progress over the past year. I know 4 songs and play them through with only a few errors, and I'm still working on my form.
I've also become a regular at Saturday afternoon drum building. Helping out at all stages of drum making. I'm almost done making a FPD and will start a 2nd one soon.
I have volunteered to help with Terry's new beginning class in Castro Valley. Starting in January, I'll be assisting 1-2 times a month.
And finally last night Sue asked me if I felt ready to move up the Intermediate class. I'm struggling with form and memory. I also feel the need more physical conditioning to keep up. She agreed, but suggested that could I stay in the beginners class to work on those, but felt that I could keep up with the Intermediate class as they were going to be starting a new song with the next session, which starts in December.
So I agreed...
So my schedule will soon be:
Tue: Beginning Class in Castro Valley
Wed: Intermediate Class
Thu: Beginning Class
Sat: Drum Building, afternoon
