Elaine Fong, our amazing Taiko teacher, taught the WSS drummers this in our last rehearsal (it’s big):
“If you are going to be wrong, do it with energy!”
She was telling us that we need to stop being tentative on the big drums – to go for it – and look like we know what we’re doing.
The result is here. Advance to 4:30 to see the windup to the big finish by the group. Maybe not exactly the same moment, but with great energy!!!
