Studio Spotlight: Taiko Drumming with Peter Marino

Peter Marino has been teaching percussion for the past 20 years and is the head of the Atlanta Taiko Project, whose aim is "spreading the joy of music-making." It is Peter's professional focus to help amateurs understand the secret that professiona musicians know but rarely share: that it is more fun to play an instrument than to listen to one. Taiko drumming - an ensemble style of drumming that originated in Japan - is easy to learn for any age, and does not require any previous experience or even knowledge of how to read music. It's also a great stress-reliever, and great exercise for your brain.
