Description: 

I have spent a portion of my quarantine playing the assortment of bowls, shakers, and random sound makers I've accumulated.  This has inspired me to practice small-drum rudiments and play the shime-daiko again.  In this workshop, I'll do a quick overview of grip and strike, show some drills I've found most helpful, and share my current approach(es) to composing for these instruments.

Please have ready:
 bachi -- medium-weight or drumsticks if available
 a pillow -- something to hit without rebound
 a practice pad -- something to hit with rebound
 chopsticks -- for use as bachi, so not your nice ones
 something green, something red -- a post-it of each color is perfect

See you there!  -- Kris
