We offer a professionally led hands-on taiko drumming experience in elementary, middle, secondary school and college/university settings. Workshops are offered from beginner to advanced levels and hourly, daily and weekly rates are available. Artist residency programs are negotiable. Student taiko drum gear is provided.
Students engage in physical warm-up exercises, martial arts stance, vocal shouts and drum sticking techniques. They practice rhythmic drills, verbal notation, song rudiments, choreography and group song playing. Students experience the respect and cooperation of group taiko drumming and develop listening and communication skills through the group process.
