Learn the technical basics of taiko and sample a few specific playing styles in our Beginners classes – the perfect starting ground for your taiko learning journey. Over the 9-week curriculum, you will be introduced to the foundations of taiko, including exploring traditional playing styles and learning the names of the many different drums that make up the taiko family.
Prior musical training is not required – just bring yourself and an open heart and mind! All of our classes have a welcoming and fun atmosphere and we are sure you will walk away with rhythm in your body. Beginners provides you with the necessary basics to join one of our regular Elements classes, but if you are not yet ready to move on to our other weekly classes we welcome you to return to the Beginners course.
Please note students are required to have their own bachi (sticks). If you wish to purchase these from Taikoz you may do so at the special student price of $40.
