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.

Kids Lessons

Thinking about joining KNT?

Every Kita no Taiko member started out just like you…liking what they see and wanting to try it out! All potential Kita no Taiko members must complete three levels of workshops, and then apprentice for a year. You can also take workshops without the intention of joining the group, they’re great to try out for fun!
To sign up for a workshop, email us at info@kitanotaiko.ca to join our mailing list. You will then be informed when the next workshop is coming up.
