We’re learning a couple new songs in chu-daiko class this year. One of them is full of showy arm movements, with lots of locking.
At last week’s class, one of my classmates gave me some feedback to adjust my showy arms. Despite my locking, my timing was off. “It’s like a punch,” she said. We discussed some more, and she explained that the entire song was about really fast movements.
Ohhh!! Punch, not flow. Sensei doesn’t always explain these things to us, so I’m really glad my classmate did.
My last two taiko posts were about feedback as well. This is from three different people, all solid veterans in our group.
I love this so much.
