Why to learn taiko
Taiko drumming originates in Japan and is traditionally played at festivals in towns and villages across the country. It is so popular there are thousands of amateur groups there, of all ages, representing a broad cross-section of the community.
Come and try these amazing sounding drums, experience the exhilaration of taiko drumming in a group, and build up your taiko skills.
Taiko is for everyone; you don’t have to be young, fit and strong to play. And even if you don’t think you have any rhythm whatsoever, come along and you might be surprised!
Playing taiko has additional benefits for your well-being as well. It’s empowering and stress-busting. And there’s also the basic satisfaction of making loads of noise with like-minded people.
TAIKORONIK is founded by experienced taiko teacher and performer Georgie McGeown and is her labour of love taiko project. She hopes you’ll join her!
