Taiko Drumming Experience

A private lesson of the exciting art of Taiko drumming.

You will learn how to play the Taiko, or Japanese drum. Unlike western drums, Taiko are often played standing up; this is because the Taiko player uses their entire body to hit the drum rather than just their arms. The drumming style is almost martial in its movements and it is an incredibly fun form of exercise ! You will learn how to hold the bachi, or sticks, and how to hit the drum correctly, before progressing on to learning some traditional rhythms.
