"I believe you have found an effective formula for sharing not only the SJT philosophy and drumming style with others in the taiko family, but sharing the true spirit of the drums by your
example and your love for the art form". - Bill W.

"Serious taiko in joyful company." - Tiffany R.

"The workshop was the best three days of Taiko I have ever experienced." - Scott M.
