Drumming with Peyton Sensei

Taiko Drummer Stuart Peyton joined the sophomores today to teach a crash course in Taiko Drumming.  The students learned Japanese words, learned some history and mastered many basic drumming techniques.

The Bingham Gymnasium was full of beautiful noise as each of the fifty eight tenth graders practiced and performed multiple combinations of sounds (it all depends on how and where the drum is struck).

Below are some pictures followed by some film clips.
