Taiko -Japanese Drum-Taiko drumming is a form of music, physical exercise for discipline of both body and mind.
Taiko is the Japanese word for ‘drum’. Wadaiko is the art of Japanese drumming Wadaiko combines rhythm, movement, and spirit. The sound of the taiko could be heard as part of everyday Japanese life for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. Its origins lie deeply embedded in Japanese culture. Byron Taiko Project supported by Community Initiative Program Byron Shire Council, We providing Digital Collaboration weekly lessons through the broadcasting live tuition now on every Thursday.
Please follow Byron Taiko Facebook page for more information for ongoing lessons and digital collaboration tuition videos.
In 2017-2020 members of the then Byron Taiko provided a variety of Activities and workshops supported by funding from Byron Council’s Community Initiatives Program and Multicultural NSW’s Celebrating Diversity Program.
School VisitByron Taiko can bring a van load of drums to your school to run hands-on workshops for a day or half-day. We can be flexible in our approach in order to help you achieve the educational outcomes you require.
The most common approach is for us to run 4 workshops, each of about an hour, catering for up to 30 pupils at a time. For this kind of workshop, we need a large space (school halls are usually ideal), where we can make noise that won’t interfere with the normal running of the school.
This is just one approach. There are many ways to create a successful day of taiko, so it’s best to get in touch with us directly to discuss how we can achieve it with you. Please email us or call: 0469 266 446.
