TaikoMIND highlights “mindful learning” as participants play taiko- Japanese ensemble drumming.  There’s nothing quiet about this mindful experience!

In this workshop participants will learn to play a traditional taiko song as an ensemble, using proper form.  Activities, games and self-reflection will support the learning process in playful, interactive and meaningful ways to encourage real-world connections to everyday mindfulness. 

 Taiko drumming is irresistible fun – and easy to learn.  It is a perfect venue for learning about culture, music, performance art, team building and mindfulness.  Playing drums in a team requires focused attention, cooperation and self-discipline – key elements of the art form and essential life skills.  Every person’s part matters to the whole group’s success.

 All the while drummers are developing 5 important mindfulness skills:  Calming, Noticing, Focusing, Adapting, and Connecting.

Holly Cluff is the author and facilitator of TaikoMIND programs. She created this framework for mindful learning as a way to combine her love of taiko with her expertise as an instructor and her passion for sharing mindfulness.  It has been a powerful way to utilize her skills and teach life lessons that reach beyond any classroom setting.  Providing workshops and school programs has been exciting, meaningful, creative work.  Children and adults consistently report the benefit of their participation.

 Holly has been learning, performing and teaching taiko since 2009 as a Community Group member of Odaiko Sonora.  She has played at festivals, concerts and special events in and around Tucson and Arizona. Holly has worked in schools to support student and adult learning for more than 35 years as a classroom teacher, special educator, instructional coach and administrator. She has been formally practicing mindfulness and meditation since 2009 and is also a certified Koru Mindfulness instructor- a specially designed curriculum for young adults.
