Yukai Daiko would like to thank everyone who attended the fall 2012 trial period. We take great pride in teaching people with diverse musical talents and levels of musicianship the art of taiko, and fall quarter is the only time we are granted this opportunity. Each participant made a dynamic impression, and we hope that you all will continue to stay updated with our current events and come back next year.
The end of trial period marks the beginning of the taiko journey for the next generation of Yukai Daiko members. Yukai Daiko would like to welcome its 9th generation to the Yukai Daiko family:

Ever wanted to learn how to play taiko, or Japanese drumming? Want to meet new friends and check out a neat student group on campus? Then come visit Yukai at our annual Open House on Thursday, October 11 from 7 to 9 pm! Meet us at the Bruin Bear and we’ll tell you about who we are, what we do, and even perform a few of our songs.
At Open House, we’ll also tell you about our annual Trial Period, a series of twelve free workshops in which our members will teach you the fundamentals of playing taiko, as well as various pieces of our repertoire! At the end of trial period, applications will also be available for trialees interested in joining our group for the rest of the year. No previous experience is necessary for trial period, and all UCLA students are welcome!
Trial period workshops begin on Friday, October 12 and are offered Fridays from 7:45 to 10 pm and Saturdays from 9:45 am to 12 pm. Please meet us at the Bruin Bear and wear comfortable clothes. We hope to see you there!
