Participants will also learn teamwork and make taiko crafts. 

There will be two groups, a beginners group for participants with no taiko experience, focusing mainly on stance, striking, and basic techniques.

The intermediate group is for participants with previous taiko experience, and will focus on musicality, soloing, stage presence, and other advanced techniques  The camp will culminate with a recital performance by all participants.
