Have you been wanting to learn to play taiko but live just a bit too far away to justify driving to Ulm for weekly lessons? Then this course is for you!
Taiko Hybrid - Beginner Taiko Course
In this course students will participate in weekly Saturday morning sessions online, and then one Saturday a month we will meet in the dojo for a longer, in-person session to put what you have learned to use on the actual taiko drums.
Students will also have access to our extensive video & resource library, a weekly homework checklist for practice at home, and each session will be recorded and made available to you for later review.
11 online sessions (1 hour per session)
5 IRL sessions at TZD (2 hours per session, exact dojo dates are in our calendar starting Feb. 13, 2021)
Full access to the TZD video & resource library
Homework checklist linked to practice videos and other resources
Video of each online session to review later (or to catch up if you miss a session)
* Please note, our Taiko Hybrid course will not include endurance training or yoga.
