A beginners Taiko course is the perfect way to learn about Taiko and get a taste of what Taiko can do for you. We offer courses for everyone age 7 and older.
Already have some experience? Great! We have intermediate and advanced courses too, so whether you want to fine tune some basics or develop your skills, we can help.
Not sure if taiko is for you? No problem! The first two weeks of every semester are offered as trial classes, FREE OF CHARGE. Should you wish to continue, a course contract will be given to you for completion.
Beginning in February 2021 we will be opening a new taiko course exclusively for children and youth ages 7-18
The opportunity to begin a new youth course only happens every few years, so don't miss out on this chance to get your child involved in taiko!
beginning Feb. 12, 2021
WHAT TO EXPECT
Get dressed in your favorite sport clothes and get ready to have some fun! We warm up each session with a few minutes of endurance training and yoga.
The rest of the session we are on the drums learning elements of taiko tradition, rhythmic concepts, technique, choreography, repertoire and more.
We pack every session full of useful information that you can take home to practice. Practicing at home is easy - no drum required! All you need is a mirror, a little space, and your voice!
If your weekly sessions aren't enough for you, we also have a private access student website full of videos, music sheets, audio files, and all sorts of extras to help you practice your taiko at home.
Fine tune your basic strike, your stance, review your course basics, or practice that new song we're learning in class. It's all there, and it's all free to use for our students.
While our courses are generally taught in German with English support, many of our student resources are all in English wich German subtitles, so you can learn some English with your taiko practice! Watch a sample lesson from our student site (below).

NEW in 2019!
P i @ TZD
You've seen it - people playing with burning staves and balls of fire on chains? It's called POI, and it's amazing and exciting and you probably thought "How cool! I could never do that..." well think again!
We're very excited to be bringing Poi lessons to TZD! Starting in 2019, accomplished dancer, teacher, and poi performer, Melanie Ott (Maya In Motion) will be teaching you how to play with fire!
Lessons will be loads of fun, but of course without the fire ;)
