“If the whole wide world had a heartbeat, it would sound like Taiko!….(it’s) the most fun I’ve ever had hitting something with sticks.”
– Ed Leung

“…great teachers with such enthusiasm and energy; very obviously dedicated to the art of Taiko and to passing on the skill and traditions to the students. The class itself always went by far too quickly…it was so easy to get caught up with the drumming, and always fun.”
– Dr. Jane Toyota

“Thanks so much for the last ten Monday evenings and allowing me the opportunity to play your precious drums at the dojo. I found the experience humbling, invigorating and enlightening. You all teach with a wonderful, refreshing positive spirit.”
– Hugo von Levetzow
