[2017 Taipei International Percussion Summer Camp] - Summer 17'

Posted by Yun Ju Pan on November 18, 2017 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

In the late July, again, I worked for Ju percussion Taipei International Percussion Summer Camp where I feel like home. This year, we have Mr. Frederic Macarez from France, Prof. Jose Aponte from Puerto Rico/UNT, Prof. Sergio Bellotti from Italy/Boston, and beautiful She-E Wu from TAIWAN/USA!!!

This year, I translated for this amazing drummer and educator Sergio Bellotti.  I was so nervous when I find out who my teacher is since I haven’t play drum set for almost four years. Thanks to Sergio, everything went pretty well.

I learned so much from Sergio's classes. His teaching style is very energetic and easy to understand. As always, the best part of this job is to know these amazing musicians in and after class and learn their life experiences. As I always say, teaching at TIPSC is like a dream for percussionists. 

I am such a lucky girl who get to meet these amazing students, musicians, teachers, and friends. Thanks to percussion and Music brought US together!

[Judging TPAA 2017 Taipei International Percussion Championship]- Summer 17'

Posted by Yun Ju Pan on November 18, 2017 at 9:55 PM Comments comments (0)

I had the honor to be one of the panel in the Taiwan World Percussion Chamionship this year. 

今年夏天我很榮幸的擔任TPAA2017年打擊樂錦標賽的評審。真的感謝主辦單位和我的恩師 - 陳文姬老師的抬愛。

It was fun and also extremely hard to grade so many talented young musicians. Also, I had the honor to translate for one of my favourite marimbaists that i met in the Ju Percussion Summer Camp years ago - Nanae Mimura. She had inspired me a lot when I was young, and this summer, I believe she had inspired more students! 



[Clinic and Performance in Macau] - Summer 17'

The story starts three years ago at the Taipei International Percussion Championship. I competed with a girl from Macau, and after that we became good friends. This summer I was fortunate to be invited to give a clinic with a short recital for students and teachers from Stick Music in Macau.

It was so nice to meet so many new friends in one day, and of course, it was amazing to visit this beautiful place!! I love Macau!! <3 <3

「First time share music in Macao,China!」 Thank Fai Sir , Man Che and the StickMusic for having me to share music and some ideas with students in Macao this afternoon!! I had so much fun! (Also, had so much good food ;)

「成就達成:第一次把我滴音樂分享到澳門!」 今天下午在澳門的工作坊成功!謝謝輝老大、佩曼,以及所有Stick Music 的美女帥哥成員的照顧與肯定,讓我擁有這樣美好的回憶!

[4LoKo$’ Percussion Quartet World Tour]

First, it started with my an Asia tour with the quartet I formed - “The 4 LoKo$’ Percussion Quartet.”

We spent more than a year to prepare a very unique program and share with audiences in Japan and Taiwan. We went to Toho Gakuen University Music department and played my transcription of Bartok’s Fifth String Quartet for my HERO Prof. Keiko Abe and her students. Then we went back to Taiwan and played two concerts in Taipei and Yunlin, and taught 60 students in Yunlin Day of Percussion.

This is a little summary of this trip from my FaceBook Page Yun Ju Pan – ALicE PaN quote:

{4LoKo$' Asia Tour SUCCESS!!} The last two members of the Four LoKo$' Percussion Quartet have arrive home safely.

『The 4LoKo$'打擊樂四重奏』為期一周的亞洲巡迴演出終於完成了!就在剛剛,最後兩位洋人團圓也順利平安歸國。


We had an amazing week touring around Asia. Played three incredible concerts in three different cities in Taiwan and Japan, reached over 300 audiences, taught around 60 students in one day, lots of laughing and lots of beautiful memory. It was defiantly an memorable week of my life.

自己要策劃完成這樣的一場巡演真的很不容易,受到好多貴人的幫助。真的要感謝我們的老師Gwen Dease教授,Jon Weber博士,密西根州立大學音樂系,密西根州立大學校友會,我們超強的經紀人Studio Legato X Legato 樂聚 Jaimie姊,密西根州立大學帥氣校友學長Wei Chen Lin,雲擊打擊樂團 Beer Wu,安倍圭子老師,桐棚音樂學院,東吳大學音樂系,東吳大學表演藝術中心,卓悅馬林巴木琴,豪聲樂器,vic firth 以及所有所有來看我們給我們鼓勵的觀眾朋友們,真的希望我們的感動你們也感受到了!

Last, I want to tell my awesome quartet members - Kathryn Irwin, William Gerald, Alex Smith - WE DID IT. I am so grateful to have all of you to do this cool thing with me. Thank you so much. I learned so much from each of you!! AND I'M SO PROUD OF OURSELVES!! :D
