Taiko drumming - "Wadaiko" - is an energetic, physical and highly choreographed art form. Originally from Japan, with roots going back hundreds of years and encompassing a variety of styles, rhythms and movement, this traditional folk art is now developing and spreading as a modern European art form.

Now is the chance for people here in Scotland to experience a full course of this exciting discipline which is energetic & fun & learnt alongside other taiko enthusiasts!

The Glasgow course is on Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 8 weeks starting 4 Sept & ending 23 Oct.

This course is designed to be suitable for both beginners & improvers, and will take the participants step by step from the stance, to the bachi drumstick grip through to learning a performance piece.  The piece for this season is Summer Storm (Susano-o). This is a newly written piece which was showcased at a show during the Edinburgh Fringe festival last year. It comes with a catchy groove and a new set of solos to learn, along with the movements and voice that make up this energetic piece. This course will enable participants to develop the mitsu-uchi rhythm, bachi sabaki movements whilst challenging something completely new & different.

If you have previous experience in taiko, you may be interested in our "Taiko Night" group, which meets at 7:45-10pm on Mondays at the same venue.
