Taiko Course for Adults

Experience the power of traditional Japanese Taiko through untraditional rhythms. The  Course engages participants to an enjoyable atmosphere to unify their body-mind-spirit.

The course introduces an innovative Unique Drumming style invented by our group, in which we utilized the foundation of Japanese Taiko with different elements from various culture. It is a new art form which allows you to learn traditions in an untraditional way. Most importantly, the regular drumming class offers you a means of getaway, a pioneering way for recreational exercise, and an extraordinary tool to alleviate your daily stress.

What is Taiko?

Taiko has more than two thousand years of history in Japan. In early years, it was used in war for startling the enemy. Gradually it was accustomed as a tool for folk festivals and religious ceremonies, and currently widely used as a music accompaniment. Taiko is used in religious rituals for praying due to its robust sound, as if the voice of God. While in folk festivals, the sound of Taiko mimics natural power, such as rain or wind, to scare off demons. Taiko, as compared to other types of drums such as jazz drums, emphasizes more on the coherence of beat and “form” – a term Japanese use in describing body motion. Thus, strong visual impacts created by the variety of imaginative movements become the prominent feature of Taiko Drumming. In addition, Taiko Drumming is characterized by an ensemble playing on different drums, which requires coordination and cooperation between members, and as a result, Taiko Drumming has become a highly-energized medium in blending music, bodily power, and team collaboration.
