On Sunday 16th July, Taikoz will present the latest in their family workshop series at the Taikoz Studio in Ultimo, inviting the whole family to explore the thunderous energy and spirit of this Japanese inspired performance art.
In 2017, Taikoz will present both their popular Play Taiko Intro Workshop and Family Play Taiko, which offers the opportunity for the whole family (and friends) to participate in the fun of taiko together.
Since 1997, Taikoz has cemented their position as one of Australia’s most exciting and vibrant performance ensembles, regularly performing on both Australian and international stages.
The Taikoz studio in Ultimo offers regular introductory workshops as well as weekly term classes, allowing students of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn how to play taiko (Japanese drums). A musical activity that combines cultural appreciation, fun and teamwork in one, these holistic classes are proving a hit amongst children and adults alike.
Prior musical training is not required – all that is required is an open heart and mind! All of Taiko’s classes have a welcoming and fun atmosphere that ensure everyone who attends will walk away with rhythm in their body.
A great form of exercise, taiko workshops and classes also offer a wide range of physical benefits. Reduced stress, and the development of rhythm, co-ordination and breath control skills, all contribute to a meditative yet energised experience quite like no other.
