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! No experience is necessary.

Upcoming Dates:


Due to COVID-19, Taiko Hour is currently suspended until further notice.

Take care, everyone!

Typically, we hold Taiko Hour or Taiko Drills sessions on a monthly basis. Taiko Drills sessions are a fun and challenging hour to hone our Taiko skills! Open to all levels, our Taiko Drills sessions focus on drilling the basics in various Taiko styles.

Once we re-open our Taiko Hour and Taiko Drills sessions, you will be able to check back here, or on Midnight Taiko’s Facebook page, a few weeks ahead for more details.

Please sign up on Eventbrite to secure your spot in the class on one of our many dates. Minimum age is 12 years old and any participants under 16 years of age will require a guardian be present, as well as signing a waiver.
