Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have musical experience?

No experience necessary! Any skill level is welcome. We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

What about equipment?

We will have some equipment available for you to use. We recommend that members eventually make or buy their own pair of bachi (drum sticks) to practice with. Performers do need their own uniform though!

Who gets to perform?

Every member who works hard to learn the beats and choreography will have a chance to perform.

What if I need an interpreter?

If you require an interpreter, no problem! We’ll work with you to make sure an interpreter is present. If you’re Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, you’ll still be able to feel the vibrations of the drums.
