Kita No Taiko invites you to join us for the fun and challenge of this rigorous, choreographed activity.

Why do we have workshops, lessons, and classes?

For you to:

  • experience Japanese drumming as an art form and from a different perspective: through participation!
  • better understand the various integrated components of this art form (drumming, music, and choreography)
  • learn the importance of being part of a group by playing together
  • allow us to help you find the taiko player within


It is $50 for a 2.5-hour workshop. The minimum age is 13 years old. You can also use Gift Certificates to participate in any level workshop.


It is $100 for four 1.5-hour lessons. The minimum age is 13 years old. Learn to play taiko over 4 lessons in a fun, recreational setting.
