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 drop-in 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 playing taiko together by the end of class. *There is a $10 fee for a pair of drum sticks (called "bachi") which you can keep whether or not you decide to sign up for future classes.
Then sign up for the Intro Taiko class (http://www.michigantaiko.net/adult-classes) if you would like to continue learning and playing taiko with us! ($120 for a series of 6 classes including 1st free trial class):
