Jimmy Nguyen

Performer: Jimmy was fascinated when he first saw a taiko performance through UCSD's Asayake Taiko as he was seeking a new hobby that would inspire him tremendously. Opportunity knocked on his computer screen, and he found Naruwan Taiko at the right time. He eagerly started taking community workshops with Naruwan in mid-2010, then joined the group in late September, and also has joined Asayake Taiko a couple of months after. After graduating from UCSD in 2015, he continues with Naruwan Taiko. Taking advantage of these opportunities, he strives to achieve musical self-improvement, improve creativity, practice teamwork and teaching skills, and strengthen the love for his hobbies that include TAIKO!
