We are thrilled to continue our fun and fascinating workshop series – Family Play Taiko. This workshop has been created so all members of your family (8+ years) can experience the joy of playing taiko together. Parents and children; grandparents and grandkids; aunties, uncles and nieces, nephews – everyone is welcome!
Family Play Taiko is a unique family experience that will energise, stimulate and excite. Taiko playing requires great energy and teamwork, as well as total integration of one’s mind, body and spirit; the rhythm of the taiko pulsates through your body – its expression is primal and earthy.
Taiko playing is also great exercise. It is a musical activity that is challenging and fun, and offers wonderful benefits like reducing stress, aiding relaxation and inviting personal expression. The Taikoz members and associates who lead our workshops are all highly trained performers and teachers. Prior musical training is not a requirement.
You do not need to purchase a pair of bachi (drumsticks) to participate in this workshop. You will be given a pair to use.
Your safety is our highest priority while in attendance at the Australian Taiko Academy.
