2020 Winter Intro To Taiko Course 

(starting on Friday 24th July) - Mt. Wellington
(starting on Saturday 25th July) - Penrose 

Feeling sluggish from the Winter Blues? Or maybe you are worried about catching the winter flu? Now is the time to boost your immune system and take back control in your life!  Taiko is a great way to keep the brain active while up your fitness level - many research has proven that drumming helps to relief anxiety and depression which often associated with the winter months, and drumming up a sweat will also help to boost the immune system!  

This Introduction to Taiko Course is a perfect way to get some exercise into your weekly routine while learning something new.  The class will take you through the fundamentals of playing taiko such as basic striking technique, stance and movement as well as build awareness of ensemble playing skills. Each class is 90 min long and run once a week. 


The course is open to all age groups and fitness levels - the course is in 2 parts, each part is 5 week long.  This 5 week length is carefully designed to give people enough time to learn the bases of playing taiko, have an authentic taiko experience while meet some new people and make new friends. Once you have complete the 1st part of the course you have the choice of continuing with the 2nd part if you wish - the 2nd part will build on the foundations taught in the 1st part and extend your playing ability with new songs and new technique challenges.
