Taiko is a joie de vivre. Concentrate on movements, sequences and the technical challenges and you can achieve peace of mind. But it is more than a means to turn off the stress of everyday life, it also offers a sense of community.

For the curious, there are performances from time to time or occasional Saturday afternoon classes available on a regular basis. This introductory class costs 20, - € and can count toward a monthly subscription if you chose to continue. Payment also includes the use of drums and drumsticks. Please ask for gift vouchers - a good idea as a Christmas present (introductory classes or weekendworkshops). Pre-registration is required, as space is limited.

Var Matsuri 1Another way to discover Taiko is to participate in a one of our workshops. Over one intensive weekend, we explore the underlying rhythms of a certain piece, while also developing the content of the piece. A basic musical education is not necessary for this - the rhythms are mediated in syllable language and once spoken they are easily played back.

The workshop costs 40, - € per day and includes the use of drums and drumsticks. If you are interested, please contact Lilo Fischer at 0172 - 39 88 211 or write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

NEW: Since autumn 2019, we offer classes for parents and kids (up to 6 years) - next dates are:

Saturday, 15th February 2020 from 11-1pm
Saturday, 4th April 2020 from 11-1pm (cancelled due to Corona-Virus!)
Saturday, 20th June 2020 from 11-1pm (cancelled due to Corona-Virus!)

And NEW, too: in February, we started a new beginner taiko class on wednesday evenings from 7 - 9 pm - please ask if interested;-)

Workshops on demand (also available off location) is ideal for company teambuilding or student groups: the rhythmic beats releases aggression, while the vibrations bring body and soul in harmony. Considering music and speech are both processed in the same part of the brain, it can be assumed that regular music or rhythm teaching can support other facets of learning and development.

japanisches Trommeln4Some things to consider:

  • Taiko requires large, accentuated movements - comfortable sportswear is advised.
  • Taiko drumming is very noisy - hearing protection is issued on site.
  • We kindly ask that shoes be changed before entering the dojo;-)
  • Only those who have registered in advance will be allowed to participate.
