All you need to know about Auditions


Day One of Auditions for Stanford Taiko will take place on Friday, October 1st 2021, 7:45 PM - 10:00 PM in Braun Rehearsal Hall.

First Round auditions cuts are held in 30 minute timeslots from 4:00pm - 7:00pm on Sunday, October 3rd in Dinkelspiel Auditorium.

For those that pass the first round of auditions, you will play with our group for our next two practices! Our practices are held Monday (10/4) and Thursday (10/7) from 7:45pm - 11:00pm (held in Dinkelspiel Auditorium). These are our normal (and mandatory) practice times during the year, and all are a mandatory part of your audition.

Final Round auditions are held from 7:45pm - 10:30pm on Monday, October 11th (in Dinkelspiel Auditorium). This is a great opportunity to invite your friends to see what you've been working on!

We would love to have any Stanford student, undergraduate or graduate, interested in Taiko come and audition, regardless of skill level! The majority of Stanford Taiko members auditioned without ever having played taiko before--all you need to bring are comfortable clothes, a water bottle, and your excitement to play taiko!
