Taiko is a dynamic art-form based on traditional Japanese drumming practiced all over the world. This Adult Recreational Taiko class is designed to introduce the fundamentals of taiko technique, practice of kumidaiko (ensemble drumming), awareness of ki (energy), use of koe (voice), history and philosophy—all while having a good time! No experience necessary but come ready for a workout!
Prerequisite: one of Mark’s Introductory Taiko Workshops (the next one is coming up on Sunday, September 10) or previous Taiko experience. If you do not have previous experience, please contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org to possibly arrange a private lesson for orientation.
Adult Recreational Taiko Class
If it is fewer than 3 days before the first class, we recommend you call HMT before you register.
Register early — classes can often fill up!
We ask for payment information with your registration — either a credit card number or check — which is processed shortly before the first class. This holds your space and helps us guarantee attendance to the instructor.
Be sure to check the calendar for Mark’s upcoming workshops!
