Taikoz fosters a family-friendly environment and children of all ages are welcome to begin their taiko journey with us. Bachi Club is for children and young adults between the ages of 11 and 14. The curriculum runs over the course of four 8-week terms and focuses on learning a variety of taiko playing styles, technique, complex rhythms and musical independence. 
Bachi Club has two classes available, one on Tuesday and one on Saturday. 

In Bachi Club, we focus on:
  • Integrating movement of the bachi drumsticks, arms and body
  • Good sound production
  • Developing a solid sense of rhythm
  • Endurance
  • Speed
  • Breath control

Key learning points are:
  • Studying a variety of traditional taiko styles
  • Learning the accompanying kuchi shoga (taiko rhythm vocals)
  • Learning and practicing a musical composition
  • Practicing pieces called renshu that involve specific musical and technical challenges
  • Developing general musicianship
  • Learning about aspects of Japanese culture and taiko history

Bachi Club members also have the opportunity to perform at our annual Australian Taiko Academy concert.

It is the Academy's policy that students must wear hearing protection while attending our classes. You can bring your own ear plugs, or purchase reusable ear plugs from our shop for $35 or disposable foam ear plugs at the dojo for $1.50.

PLEASE NOTE: The Full fee is the standard price to book into this class for those aged 14 to 18. The Concession fee is only applicable where more than one sibling from the same family is attending this class (aka Sibling Discount). In the case of a Sibling Discount, the first sibling pays the Full fee and the subsequent siblings pay the Concession fee.
