They give yo u an invigorating workout for mind\, body and spirit... I 've attended two workshops and can't wait for my third. Through a relaxed and fun atmosphere\, the workshops introduce you to music -making\, mind-body connection\, and respect for the art. San Jose Taiko's instructors and performers are masters of the art\, patient and encouraging. It was so fun to he ar them play and to listen to their descriptions of the h istory and philosophy of taiko. When it came time for our turn\, the entire class was mesmerized by the feeling of playing the big drums. I couldn't believe we could make music together after only 3 hours!&quot\;</em> SUMMARY:San Jose Taiko Public Workshop URL:/en/events/2011/06/12/san-jose-taiko-public-workshop/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
