Taiko Drumming is an energising performance art that originates from Japan and is played on beautiful drums with large sticks called 'bachi'. What's more, it is fun, invigorating and different! The tutor has studied with Taiko master, Kurumaya Sensei, in the Fukui region of Japan with a project grant from Arts Council Wales. This culminated in a composition and performance at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen in 2017. On this course, you will learn the fundamentals of technique, enjoy the physicality of playing, have fun with different styles, be eased into improvisation and learn an entire piece called 'Tanoshii', which translates as Fun'.
