Enjoy Taiko Drumming lessons at Bryant for Spring
Let’s do Taiko drumming with Master Ringtaro. Taiko is not only music, but also dance and Martial Arts. It’s unique to try authentic Taiko.
Our Taiko drumming program is designed to teach your child not only music skills but also important life skills. Our classes focus on respect, self discipline and perseverance.
We will cover the basics of Taiko drumming, along with learning an original song each session, followed by a performance in front of parents at the last class.
Kids enjoy Taiko drumming and parents love their performance.
During Taiko drumming sessions kids also learn simple Japanese vocabulary.
