CCS Taiko’s drum workshops are available to people of all ages and abilities. The physical and rigorous nature of Taiko makes it a great alternative to keep fit or excercise classes, and the confidence-building and focus on teamwork makes it perfect for organisations looking to create a strong and motivated workforce.
Taiko workshops are transformational. Participants will often surprise themselves, changing the way they feel about their own potential, their colleagues and the team as a whole. The main aims of Taiko are to create an environment of achievement and success, and most importantly, to have fun!

Hour 2 (10:30 – 11:30 am) Warm up plus Practice of Pieces – Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels all welcome for this hour and it is where beginners really feel the benefits and pleasure of Taiko, having mastered those first few core skills beginners will accomplish playing an entire piece of music with the whole team.
