Background Information

グループの方針

Arashi Daiko encourages its members to experience and share taiko by challenging themselves and striving for personal growth. Each member must overcome their own obstacles and face life's many confrontations. It is only through the development of each individual, both within and outside of Arashi Daiko, that the group may evolve as a collective.

Our goal when performing continues to be, above all else, communication with the public. Beyond the musical, traditional, and cultural aspects of their performance, the audience may share in the joy felt by Arashi's members.

グループの構成・哲学
Describe the ensemble's organizational structure and philosophy, including leadership structure, membership policy, and instructional process.

We are a collective and work very much as a team. All tasks, including communications (e-mail etc.), performance bookings, deciding on rehearsal and performance content, are shared among the members. Instruction for beginners is also shared,with members teaching on a rotational basis.

Our philosophy can be summarized within 3 core values:
1 - Appreciation: We appreciate being able to play the taiko that we currently have, and are grateful to all those who have contributed to the establishment of Arashi Daiko.

2 - Consideration: We each remain individuals, but when acting as a member of Arashi Daiko, we must first consider what is best for the group, not just ourselves.

3 - Respect: Arashi Daiko respects all cultures, ages and backgrounds. Regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or socio-economic differences, the group exists with an open membership policy, respects each member's individuality, and asks that all members carry this respect into the group and beyond.

Members are sought out from amongst our beginners' class not only for their taiko playing ability, but for their dedication and involvement in Arashi Daiko and in Montreal's Japanese community. Although we encourage all our students, it is up to each individual to show his/her interest and motivation.
