Sascha Molina is the Assistant Director of Sacramento Taiko Dan, (the Sacramento region’s premier Japanese drumming group), and the Director of the Sacramento Taiko Dan Youth Ensemble.
Sascha tours as an independent artist and regularly collaborates both with other taiko performers as well as artists from many disciplines including Vocal, Martial Arts and Dance.
She continues to perform across the United States, Canada, and Japan, while simultaneously instructing at Sacramento Taiko Dan as well as pursuing further training for continued growth. As an instructor, Sascha focuses on giving youth players opportunities to grow and learn a myriad of life skills through music and cultural literacy.
Sascha has designed taiko curriculum for youth aged K-12 that combines rhythm and whole body movement with Japanese history, culture, and language skills. This blend of physical and musical discipline gives students an in-depth and hands-on experience in the arts as individuals, partners, and as members of a group.
