Learn The Art of Japanese Drumming!
Starting from basics, we will teach you the fundamental rhythmic patterns from which Taiko is evolved. We will look at all aspects of this style of drumming which distinguish it from other percussion as a unique traditional cultural art form, and a dynamic contemporary performing art.
Beginners are welcome at the start of each month – over the course of the month we build on skills and a song from our repertoire. You will find the group to be welcoming, friendly and supportive of new members.
WHEN: Thursdays 6.30 to 8.15 pm
WHERE: 2nd Floor, AMPLIFY Fitness
54 Albert Rd. Moonah.
Please contact us to let us know you are interested in coming or for more information.
There are also taiko groups in Launceston and Burnie
Your training will involve:
- Stretching & warm-ups
- Basic skills and form
- Learning songs
- Performance technique
Taiko is great fun and anyone can do it! Many people find drumming a great stress relief. It is really rewarding to work in a team and learn new skills by making music together. It is not necessary to have any prior musical experience or the ability to read music.
The training is very suitable for children (from upper primary level) through to adults of any age, and we will try hard to accommodate any special requirements you might have.
Taiko is a physical endeavour. Be prepared to get active! Wear suitable loose and comfortable clothing and bring a drink bottle. Every activity is optional, and it is up to each individual to decide whether they are up to it or not.
Taiko Drum Tasmania Inc. takes no responsibility for injuries sustained during drumming activities.
