Friday, May 7, 2010 is Coming Soon!

Check out all the info below! I'll keep you updated through ATT, but if you want to receive emails directly, please send me a note!

Dear Taiko Family:

At NATC 2009 there was an overwhelming demand for a way to keep in touch and stay connected during the time in between Conferences. We heard you and decided to do something about it. Since October 2009, a small group of us has been working to create and shape! Please help spread the word by sharing this email with all of the members of your taiko group. is a hub for all things related to taiko. A storehouse for information and a center for discussion, it is a gathering place for players across the globe.

We’re in the final stages of organizing a sustainable online space for taiko players that will include a community forum area where you can ask all your questions and engage in meaningful discussion, history and information pages that can be expanded and updated by you and other members of the forum, an interactive map showing the location of taiko groups and their contact information (plus a way to update your current information), and much more!

Once we launch, there will be opportunity to give feedback and make suggestions so you can help make the best possible space for its users. In the meantime, consider getting involved by volunteering your time as a discussion moderator, someone who brings a topic of his/her choice to the forum and guides the conversation. If you are interested in being a moderator, we need volunteers of all kinds and experience levels! You can choose to moderate for a week or a month, whatever works best for you and your schedule. Please email if you're interested or know someone who is.

In a week or two, you'll receive another email with our exact launch date and an announcement of's first moderator!

Questions? Please feel free to email any of us. We appreciate your patience as we respond--we're pretty busy working to bring to you as quickly as possible.

Thank you and we'll see you soon online!
