Taiko Lessons for Adults
Our Adult Taiko education programs can take you from “never played before” to apprenticeship.
Learn the fundamentals of Taiko playing Yakudo style, a combination of martial arts and music. Develop the taiko spirit and create a solid base in stance, form, hitting and rhythm. This is highly recommended if you’ve never tried playing Taiko before and if you have minor musical experience. Warm up to Taiko by taking our beginner’s lessons!
“If the whole wide world had a heartbeat, it would sound like Taiko!….(it’s) the most fun I’ve ever had hitting something with sticks.”
– Ed Leung
In our advanced classes, we will dive deeper into more advanced skills in tempo and rhythm. The focus of our advanced sessions involves learning new songs, listening and learning new rhythms and playing back rhythms on the fly. This is highly recommended if you’ve played Taiko for at least 1-2 years and if you have a musical background. Get more intense with your Taiko practice and join us in our advanced sessions!
“…great teachers with such enthusiasm and energy; very obviously dedicated to the art of Taiko and to passing on the skill and traditions to the students. The class itself always went by far too quickly…it was so easy to get caught up with the drumming, and always fun.”
– Dr. Jane Toyota
“Thanks so much for the last ten Monday evenings and allowing me the opportunity to play your precious drums at the dojo. I found the experience humbling, invigorating and enlightening. You all teach with a wonderful, refreshing positive spirit.”
– Hugo von Levetzow
