If you live in Japan and speak some Japanese,
check out our 6 months-long regular classes that you can be part of!


We have regular classes that meet 2-3 times a month, which lasts for 6 months. Most of these classes end with a performance at our concerts, which are in September and March. Each class is one hour to 1.5 hours long. There are over 30 studios located in cities across Japan to choose from for the regular classes!!

There are wide varieties of classes to choose from. For example, there are Eisa-taiko class (taiko originated in Okinawa, hung by a belt from the shoulder.), taiko+aerobics class, beginner’s classes, Japanese bamboo flute class, children with parents class, and many more! Many of our classes are differentiated based on the difficulty level of the piece you will be learning for the 6 months. At the end of 6 months, most classes perform at our big studio concert! The same instructor will teach one class to the end, and the participating members remain the same for the 6 month period as well. This provides an excellent opportunity for you to make new friends!

If you speak a reasonable amount of Japanese, you will be able to take part in in these classes. If you are not sure about your language level, please contact us (class@taiko-center.co.jp) and we should be able to give you a better idea. We already have some foreign members who do not speak very much Japanese in our classes - for music classes language is usually not much of an issue since you can gather a lot by observing and mimicking! We will not be able to give you a specific English support for every instruction, so you would have to be okay with figuring things out! Please check the page below for more details (in Japanese).
