Fall 2014 Asian American Studies-Related Class: Taiko Drumming Workshop

April 11, 2014 § Leave a comment

Professor Noriko Manabe in the Department of Music is teaching a class next semester titled, “MUS 255/EAS 255 Taiko Drumming Workshop: Japanese and North American Perspectives.”

The course consists of two parts. One part is a seminar on the aesthetics and social context of taiko drumming in both Japan and Asian America. The other part is a workshop learning how to perform taiko drumming, and is taught by Kaoru Watanabe, a former member of the elite Kodo drumming troupe in Japan.

This class meets from 12:30pm to 4pm on Tuesdays (unlike what the Registrar’s page says) and fulfills a Social Analysis distribution requirement.

The link to the course application site is here. Applications are due April 16.

For more information, please visit the Registrar’s page for the course.
