$15 Full / $15 Concession

Taikoz booknow

Intermediate

Our online Elements classes are designed for students with some taiko playing experience, both Elements classes focus on the integration of movement of bachi, arms and body, good sound production, development of speed, endurance, breath control, and a solid sense of rhythm.

Musical works involving a variety of taiko styles are learned over the course of the year, with students encouraged to perform at our annual Taikoz school concert – a fantastic opportunity to consolidate learning and play in front of a supportive audience!

Key learning points in both Elements I and II 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

The fundamental difference between Elements I and Elements II is that the latter is designed for students who wish to challenge themselves a little bit more, both technically and musically.

Both classes are challenging and hard working, but most of all, they are still fun! Be prepared to work and play hard!

Students have the opportunity to perform in the annual Taikoz School Concert held in December.

Once you have booked in you will receive more information about the class.

Please email classes@taikoz.com to confirm the date of the class you will be attending.
