taiko drummer, teaching artist




A certified Orff Instructor with nearly 20 years of teaching experience,  Rome specializes in introducing people of all ages and ability levels to taiko drumming.

Teaching Philosophy

Teaching taiko, teaching’s not about ‘gracing’ the students with your expertise; it’s showing a path, providing good shoes and a walking stick, and walking with the students as far as they want to go.
