“Introduction to Taiko” Workshops – September 2016!

Every year Arashi Daiko offers introductory taiko workshops to the general public.  No musical background or experience playing percussion is necessary.  You just need to be interested in trying this dynamic art form!  These workshops are generally open to people who are 14 years and older.  Even though taiko is quite physical and requires stamina, no need to worry about that; the workshops are demanding but we always respect everyone’s abilities and limitations.
