We opened registration for the 2015 North American Taiko Conference to EVERYONE, members and non-members on Saturday, December 13, 2014 during Taiko-thon 2014 with a brand new registration system that is similar to course registration at a university. Pricing, Workshop Information, and directions on how to use our Registration system went LIVE via our brand new, NATC website on the Saturday morning of Taiko-thon 2014.
Participant: Taiko Conference Participants have full access to all Taiko Conference activities, including three hands-on workshops and one discussion session. One complimentary ticket to the Taiko Jam concert is included with your registration. During the registration process you will create a username and password which will allow you to login to the website and manage your workshops and discussion session preferences. From here, you will also be able to RSVP for the Opening Session, and reserve a t-shirt for purchase at Conference.
Observer: Taiko Conference Observers can freely move around to attend any of the workshops to watch the lessons (pending room capacity), but do not directly participate in the workshops (no hands-on drumming or instruction). Observers attend and participate in the Opening Reception, any Discussion Sessions and events, and have access to the Taiko Marketplace and all other presentations. One complimentary ticket to the Taiko Jam concert is included with your registration. During the registration process you will create a username and password which will allow you to login to the website, RSVP for the Opening Session, and reserve a t-shirt for purchase at Conference.
TCA Members:$330 (participant); $125 (observer)
Non-Members: $400 (participant); $150 (observer)
