2 Places Left

Let’s do Taiko drumming with Master Ringtaro of “The School of TAIKO”.  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.

We will learn a song for each session and have a performance in front of parents in the last class of the session.
