    Great time. I would do it again, if nothing else to get better. The teacher is very encouraging and speaks English well.

What To Expect

Learn how to play Taiko, a traditional Japanese drum, on your trip to Tokyo and surprise friends and family back home with your newly acquired skill. Taiko drums are known for their “earth-shaking” sound that can be heard even from a long distance and are capable of producing a variety of rhythms. You will learn the basics of drum playing from an experience teacher while having quite a workout — playing the drums is sure to make you sweat. The lesson venue is located right along the subway line, so you will not have to make a big detour from your city sightseeing.

    The lesson was very interesting! It was the first time we played the Taiko. We think we were a bit clumsy, but the teacher was very pleasant and made repetition for the difficult parts. We really enjoyed it!

    One of the best experience ever. I've always wanted to learn taiko and finally this was available and very affordable too. The sensei is very nice and will teach you accdg to your pace. This is one on one teaching btw not a group class which is really great coz you learn more when the instructor is focused on you alone. Don't forget to ask the sensei to take a photo or video of you but he will also offer to do so. Sensei can communicate in English so there should be minimum confusion between you. A must try!

    A good event experience, the instructor Hanada San is very professional and patient in teaching, but the time is too short to wait until next time to Tokyo to experience again.

    The teacher is very friendly and often encourages us. The process is full of joy and success. I am very excited to experience Japanese traditional music! Even if we do not understand Japanese, it does not matter. Music is the language of the world!
