CPD Taiko Drumming Session for School Staff

23 March 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Devon & Torbay Music Education Hubs, in partnership with Taiko South West, are running a FREE twilight CPD session focussed on taiko drumming. Taiko is a performing art originating from Japan involving big drums and choreography. It’s very visual and a lot of fun, if you’ve not seen it before please check out this video of Tano Taiko (Taiko South West’s main performing group) https://vimeo.com/598854061.

This practical session is aimed at classroom teachers, teaching assistants and other school staff (both specialist and non-specialist) involved in music education delivery.

Lucy Thomas, instructor at Taiko South West, will be running the session on behalf of the Hub and will cover:

  • A brief overview of the history and background of taiko drumming
  • Some warm up exercises that require no equipment
  • Some fun introductory taiko drumming drills
  • A simple taiko motif which all participants will be able to play together by the end of the session.

Join us for this fun, informative and inspiring CPD opportunity! This is a practical session with all instruments and resources provided. Taiko South West will be using pipe drums. Pipe drum sets can be rented per term from Devon & Torbay Music Education Hub should you wish to do taiko drumming in your school.

This workshop will take place from 4-5.30pm on Thursday 23rd March 2023 and will be hosted by Teignmouth Community School. To book a place please click here.
