About Intro to Taiko
Introduction to Taiko is a special 6-week course for new beginners.
This class is focuses on fundamentals, and your first songs, and it is entirely dedicated to new students.
Intro to Taiko is usually offered twice a year. On the final week, your friends and family are invited to a graduation ceremony where you will get to show them what you've learned! You will also get to see our advanced classes perform what they have been learning.
Each new student will also receive your own pair of bachi (taiko drum sticks), and our online taiko handbook, so that you can practice your taiko skills at home.
Students who want to continue after Intro to Taiko will graduate into our White, Green, Yellow, Silver, and Red zones as their skills develop. Those advanced terms each run for 10 weeks and are an intensive taiko study course, with students grouped in "zones" according to the songs & skills they are working on.
