Taiko Lesson: Learn Obon Festival Drumming

Have you ever wanted to learn how to play Bon Daiko (Japanese Obon festival drumming)? Isaku Kageyama, a taiko instructor at the Los Angeles Taiko Institute, offers free Bon Daiko lessons on his website. The first few lessons will focus on fundamentals and basic patterns, and will progress from there. You can also download music files and sheet music, and use these recordings for free at your local festival.


August Educational Resources



The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, a local non-profit that connects the Pittsburgh region to the rest of the world through programming for students, teachers, and the general public, wants to hear from educators and young adults (18-24) about their interests and motivations in order to inform future programming decisions. If you are interested in sharing your thoughts with the Council to help build a more globally-minded Pittsburgh, fill out this short questionnaire and you will be contacted if you are selected to participate. Selected participants will be compensated for their time with a $25 Visa gift card. The questionnaire should last only 30-40 minutes, and the responses will remain confidential with the Third Plateau team--The Council will also never see participants' individual responses.


Japanese-English Reading Circle

The Japanese-English Reading Circle is held on the first and third Saturdays of the month. Members meet to discuss Japanese- and English- language readings with each other as well as play vocabulary games in their second language.
