UZUME TAIKO DRUM WORKSHOPS
Taiko drumming is a fun experience for all ages that will energize, stimulate and excite. Taiko playing requires great energy and teamwork, as well as total integration of one's mind, body and spirit. Participants engage in physical warm-up exercises, martial arts stance, vocal shouts and drum sticking techniques. They learn rhythmic drills and choreography. Student drum gear supplied. The Uzume Taiko members and associates who lead our workshops are all highly trained performers and teachers.

Taiko drumming is a Japanese art form which lends itself beautifully to community-building exercises. In this mini-documentary, Bonnie Soon and Jason Overy discuss how the group drumming workshops offered by Uzume Taiko can help foster a united, collective voice for and amongst the community.
 

Uzume Taiko is active performing School Shows and Teaching Workshops for youth during the Winter 2019 Season in the Lower Mainland and in B.C. School Districts. The troupe also performs for Corporate Events in the Lower Mainland.

Uzume Taiko drummers led Taiko Drum Basic Drills Workshops at the Richmond Children's Arts Festival 2017 held at the Richmond Cultural Centre. Students from Richmond and Delta Elementary School from K - 7 participated with lots of enthusiasm! This was the third year Uzume Taiko has shared their love of taiko drumming with youth at the week-long festival. There were plenty of arts and music activities for Festival goers to enjoy and we appreciate being a part Richmond's annual festival of creativity for kids!
