Do you want to learn Taiko Drumming in Michigan?

"I've always wanted to learn taiko drumming, but don't think I'd be able to do it." Have you ever said that after seeing an exciting and energetic taiko performance? I told myself that for 7 years before I finally gave it a try. My only regret is that I didn't try it sooner.

We always welcome visitors to our classes to observe and/or participate. If you have not played taiko drums before, but would like to, please also consider one our beginner options.

Check out the Performance page for details about our upcoming performances.
