Glasgow Taiko Drumming Course

About Glasgow Taiko Drumming Course

Taiko drumming - "Wadaiko" - is an energetic, physical and highly choreographed art form. Originally from Japan, with roots going back hundreds of years and encompassing a variety of styles, rhythms and movement, this traditional folk art is now developing and spreading as a modern European art form.

Now is the chance for people here in Scotland to experience a full course of this exciting discipline which is energetic & fun & learnt alongside other taiko enthusiasts!

The Glasgow course is on Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 8 weeks starting 13th January 2020, at community venue "The Space", just around the corner from the Barrowlands.

The cost of the course is £95 for the 8 weeks, with a special price of £65 if you're under 30. 

This course is designed to be suitable for both beginners & improvers, and will take the participants step by step from the stance, to the bachi drumstick grip through to learning a performance piece. The piece for this season is "Iki Iki" which means "full of life" and is an upbeat festival piece using the traditional mitsu-uchi rhythm.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Taiko Drumming Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
