What is it?

TAIKO HOUR is a short, one-hour introduction to the art of Japanese Taiko Drumming in a fun, casual environment. During this class you will meet members of Midnight Taiko, gain an overview of the history of Taiko, learn about the different Taiko drums used in an ensemble, and also learn how to play the Taiko!
