There's a Taiko Experience for All Ages and Skill Levels

The Australian Taiko Academy invites you and your family to learn to play the fascinating, awe-inspiring taiko, a Japanese percussion instrument. A range of interactive classes and workshops are available for kids, teens and adults.

You don't need to have a musical background to take part - just an enthusiasm to join in the fun! Taiko playing is a great teamwork activity that is energetic, invigorating and always enjoyable. Plus regular taiko playing has a range of wonderful benefits such as aiding relaxation, reducing stress and encouraging self-expression.

There is a class or workshop to suit everyone at the Australian Taiko Academy. Enrolment is now open for the Term 3 classes and workshops below:

  • Term 3: Kids and Teens Weekly Classes

    Looking for a musical activity for your child? Get their creative juices flowing with a taiko class in term 3. Classes are available for kids aged 3-5, 6-10, 11-14 and 14-18.

    The Australian Taiko Academy fosters a family-friendly environment and children of all ages are welcome to begin their taiko journey with the academy.

    Younger children will get to participate in musical games and learn short pieces of music, while older students concentrate more on exploring a variety of taiko playing styles, techniques, complex rhythms and musical independence.

    Taiko is a great way to meet like-minded friends as well as get creative and active at the same time. Creative Kids vouchers accepted. Classes run from July to September.

  • Term 3: Weekly Classes

    There are many weekly classes in term 3 available for people of all experience levels - from the absolute beginners to the advanced players.

    Did you know that taiko drumming can help reduce stress, aid relaxation, as well as boost self-expression? This means that taking a class will not only improve your music skills but also increase your overall well-being. Classes run from July to September.

  • Play Taiko Workshop

    Play Taiko is a beginner-friendly experience involving a unique group experience that will energise, stimulate and excite. Taiko playing requires great energy and teamwork, as well as total integration of one's mind, body and spirit; the rhythm of the taiko pulsates through your body - its expression is primal and earthy.
