A Taiko Challenge

Hi there!

After a brief conversation with Kris Bergstrom a couple weeks ago, I realized that I need to challenge myself more. I need to challenge myself to be more creative, more motivated, more focused. And, even when time is scarce, these things are possible.

So, I will make a small goal for myself here:

Every morning at the start of my day, 7 days a week for 3 months, I will practice a drill for 15 minutes. Every week will the be same drill--a roll--with slight variation, so each week is really never exactly the same. I will experiment with tempo, layering, counting... Who knows what I'll come up with to create 12 variations of the same drill?

Do you want in? I'll be here every Friday from September 9 to tell you about the next week's variation. Feel free to pipe up along the way if you have suggestions of your own!

See you on the 9th!
