Taiko Drumming

In 2016, as a part of Borton’s Artist-in-Residence program, Borton fourth and fifth graders learned to play Japanese Taiko drums.

Here are some photos of the Turtle and Monsoon Rooms rehearsing.

On February 10th, the five classes gave a performance for the whole school.

Students and parents filled the courtyard.

Each class performed their song.
