In response to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we decided to cancel it from the viewpoint of preventing the spread in Japan and ensuring safety, based on the basic policy of the country.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused to those who were planning to participate and those who cooperated with the operation, but we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

It is an ensemble training camp with Japanese drums. We provide a concentrated environment where you can study deeply.

At the training camp, I'm going to make music an issue
Acquire specific practice methods through theory and practice,
The main purpose is to lead to continuous practice after the training camp.

To be clear, just three days of practice does not improve dramatically.
However, the knowledge necessary to understand the theory of practice methods that can surely obtain results and the method of practice

I think it is important to take it home.

In that sense, the song can be anything,
This time,

We have selected "Arama" Aomori folk song Tatara Toki, which is already included in the already published "Wadaiko & Transverse Flute Ensemble Songbook" from ATN Publishing.

The song itself is on the market, but I would like to reveal in detail the various techniques hidden in Araumanosato.
It was said that it was hidden, but in fact, there is nothing hidden if you have specialized knowledge of music.
But I don't know unless I'm an expert,
How to analyze a song,
Specializing in playing the flute instead of the flute,
I would like to carefully explain the parts that are not described in the score, such as techniques for listening nicely.

As a privilege to all the students
The basic practice data used in the training camp (printable as many times as you like) and the text already have a CD sound source, but the deadline is the model performance of all songs (taken from behind at an angle that makes it easy to understand the fingering). You can watch it publicly.

The reason why we keep it open to the public is that we want you to review it even after the training camp is over.

Some people say that as their level goes up, they're not good at it or they don't seem to improve at all.
It means that my level of knowledge has increased.

In fact, compare your performance a few years ago with now.
The level will be up.
However, not feeling that way is the level of knowledge,
It means that you have deepened your understanding of music.

By going up the level and watching the video in the review,
What you learn will change.
It feels like you can see what you couldn't see before.

I want the participants to get results.
Therefore, I will publish the video without setting a deadline.

In addition, all training camp courses can be recorded.
(However, please use it only for the individual practice of the participants.)

This video is a full performance of the flute melody.
It is essential for all the taiko-only students to deepen their understanding of the melody.
(I have to sing taiko too ♪)
Please have a look.

I am looking forward to seeing you all. (Tatara Toki)
