Description

Taiko (literally “drums” in Japanese) came to Japan many centuries ago, when invaders from China arrived beating drums of war. The fighting ended, but the drums remained. Today, taiko is known best as a festival drum played in carefully choreographed pieces that combine simple, dynamic rhythms with dramatic, theatrical movements derived from martial arts.

Here at The Rhythm Hut, we err on the side of fun. Come explore rhythm and composition in Taiko Foundations or master beautiful form in Art of Taiko. More advanced students are invited to join Taiko Squad, where form and rhythm are combined to create complicated, dynamic pieces.

* Taiko students require their own sticks – available through The Rhythm Hut for $25 per pair.
