"The girls were thrilled to work with a professional who is so clearly passionate about Taiko drumming, and they absorbed his enthusiastic and highly professional approach to the performance discipline, producing a confident and impressive piece after 90 minutes of focused teaching. Thank you for the opportunity to learn a new skill. It was so much fun!"
- Alison Venn, James Allen's Girls School

Setting up a school Taiko club

A School Taiko club is a great way to give children regular access to the world of Taiko drumming. We can help you launch and maintain a school Taiko group in a number of ways. The benefits of having a school club stretch far and wide beyond the skill of drumming itself:

  • Self worth
  • confidence building
  • teamwork
  • musical development
  • physical confidence
  • control and coordination
  • insight into Japanese culture

For the school, a Taiko club:

  • broadens the range of clubs on offer
  • combines music and physical activity in one club
  • provides a way to bring together both music and physical activity
  • promotes the school when your club goes out to perform in public

We will:

  • Supply you a set of quality school Taiko drums, stands and sticks
  • Kick off the club with a day of workshops or after school Taiko sessions to promote Taiko to the children and parents
  • Lead the first few club sessions
  • Train your club leader in Taiko, and to apply what you already know of music and rhythm to the art of Taiko
  • Make regular visits to your school club sessions for guidance in maintaining good standards, and preparing for performances
  • Give your club leader all the creative support they will need for developing repertoire for the group

You'll need:

  • A teacher or parent at the school who is keen to lead a Taiko group
  • Storage for the drums
