What we're about

Have you ever seen a drum with a 3.5 foot diameter made out of a single tree trunk? Would you like a chance to see what it is like to play on it? Then stop by the Great Lakes Taiko Center for a fun and educational lesson in Japanese Taiko Drumming.

RSVP here on our Meetup Events for a "Try it out!" taiko class (https://www.meetup.com/Free-Drop-In-Taiko-Drumming-Class-in-Novi/events/) in which you will learn about the drums, basic form and playing technique, rhythmic foundations and you'll be playing and performing a short song by the end of the class. *There is a $5 bachi fee for a pair of sticks ($10 value) which you can keep whether or not you decide to sign up for future classes.
