 Taiko for Beginners

We have resumed both our “Fundamentals of Taiko” classes, for players with some experience, and a class designed for beginner players, which will cover the basics of Taiko (form, stance, strike of the drum, etc)  how to play different rhythms, and beginner pieces that are ultimately played in a group, No prior experience necessary and all equipment is provided.  Children 12 and over are also welcome with parental supervision.

Classes are on Wednesday nights, from 7:30pm-9pm and the cost is $80/per month. All classes take place at KyoDaiko’s dojo, in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia.
