Several weeks back, Kazan had the pleasure of inviting back one of our esteemed alumni Akemi Imai to teach a Miyake workshop to our members! First, everyone reviewed the regular portion of Miyake together to refresh our memories and get warmed up. Then, each member received individual feedback from Akemi on their form, stance, and how to channel their inner energy and power into each hit, while those not receiving feedback got to practice their Miyake base beat. After that, we discussed what attributes make a good solo, and then everyone got a chance to try out an original Miyake solo of their own. And, at the end or practice, a few of the older members even got to practice their fast solos! Thank you for your tips and advice, Akemi! Kazan is forever grateful for your continued support, and our Miyake form and style is looking even better thanks to your help!
