Hey, Hi and Hello TAIKOPROJECT BLOG READERS!
Greetings good friends! Hope the year 2015 is treating you well and I hope you are excited to follow along with us on all of our taiko adventures through the year 2015! Our 2015 has been quite exciting so far and we are only into the second month of the new year, so prepare yourself for many more exciting posts and maybe some vlogs along the way!
Today I am reporting on another ArtsTeach performance we had on February 6, 2015 at Judson and Brown Elementary School in Redlands, Ca. For this performance we had to wake up bright and early because we were scheduled to do two performances at 8:00am and 9:15am, so as you can probably guess, it was one of those large coffee kind of mornings. Despite it being very dark outside on the way up to Redlands, I was able to snap a quick picture of the pretty sunrise over the mountains.
Once the TP Team of Bryan, David, Janelle, Jen and myself gathered at the Multi Purpose Room, we moved in our equipment and prepared to wow the kids of Judson and Brown Elementary. The kids had a great time and I think they really enjoyed the performance as well as the audience participation section. I think my favorite moment of the show was successfully making in through Expanding in the new time signature we have been practicing. It really made me think, but the groove was very solid and I was definitely sweating afterwards. Haha!
After our second show we had time to take a couple photos with the classes that came to watch and some of the kids gave us high fives for the awesome performance! SUCCESS! Another mission accomplished! Thank you Judson and Brown Elementary for having us! Hope to see you again soon!
