TaikoSkin Podcast Ep.16- "Starting a Taiko Group 2"

So you're starting a new taiko group- where do you get your drums? Where do you practice? Where do you find a teacher? And if there aren't any teachers, where can you learn? We offer some tips and resources for anyone considering starting a taiko group, or trying to establish some fresh direction for their new team.

Tip of the Month
Learn some basic music theory. As Isaku explains, it can change the way you hear, perceive and play music, even for taiko players. 

Video of the Month
I unfortunately lost track of the video that I mentioned in the episode, so I posted this instead. Why? Because Reggie Watts is a talent and a half. Trust me, this is the best thing you'll see today.
