The Performing Track is designed as an intensive course of study leading to mastery of the art form.
Training will focus on establishing and developing key components of Taiko that make the art form unique and powerful – stamina, technique, kata (form) and spirit (ki). Classes start at a basic level and students progress according to personal capacity, commitment and discipline. Students are required to attend and participate fully in class regularly, to study and commit new rhythms and concepts to memory on a week to week basis and to assist fully as a volunteer with tasks involved in maintaining a strong community.
Previous Taiko training is not required to join but experience in a discipline of music, athletics, martial arts or dance is highly recommended. If you are interested in taking up the challenge but not sure if you have what it takes, give it a try anyway – you’ll have a great time and you might be surprised!
