Why come to the European Taiko Conference?


European taiko is in its infancy, and exists in relatively isolated pockets across the continent. Those people who come to the ETC believe that there are multiple benefits in getting together in a structured and yet relaxed, friendly, collaborative and supportive environment. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • the sharing of ideas and experiences;
  • take-aways that are either conceptual, practical or both;
  • skill-development;
  • making new friends and meeting old ones;
  • building networks that provide encouragement, support, and ideas for future projects.


What will you do there? What will you get from it?


From Thursday evening to Sunday lunchtime, participants have the opportunity to live in a communal space populated exclusively by other taiko players and taiko teachers, learning, eating, drinking and socialising together. It’s a lot of fun!
ETC includes a series of practical taiko workshops, but the Conference is much more than a forum for technical skill development. Gaining experience of a number of different taiko teachers can help participants decide what kind of further training they might want for themselves or their group, and from which teachers they would like it.
For the people who come to ETC, technical training is only part of the story. It is widely said that “taiko is more than just drumming”. The Conference provides a unique opportunity to explore precisely those things that make taiko “more than” just drumming.

 
The more important question: What will you BRING to it?
