Taiko drumming combines rhythm, movement & energy. It's uplifting to play, is good for physical & mental health, and helps develop coordination & internal rhythm. Taiko promotes teamwork & is also a great stress-uster!
The beginners course is suitable for adults of all ages & abilities, and covers the basics of taiko from the stance & grip, through to learning a full taiko drum piece by the end of the 8-week course. Week-by-week, the experienced intructors guide the participants in a friendly & supportive atmosphere.
The Dojo beginners & improvers group meets on Wednesdays 6:30 - 8:00 pm, in 8-week blocks throughout the year.
The course is held at the Mugen Taiko Dojo, the UK's only purpose-built taiko dojo, with excellent facilities. The Dojo is located halfway between Lesmahagow & Strathaven, 10 mins from the M74: you can find us by typing in Mugen Taiko Dojo in googlemaps.
If you have previous experience in taiko, you may be interested in our "Taiko Night" group, which meets at 8:00 -9:30pm on Wednesdays at the same venue. We also run weekend workshops & intensive courses, as well as a variety of further training.
