Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes
Number of Participants
6,160 JPY– (tax included)
The approximate 1 hour trial lesson starts with greetings and stretches. After that, you will practice the basic way of wadaiko (Japanese taiko drum) and how to hit the drum. As you become more comfortable, your rhythm will improve naturally. The difficulty of the rhythm and song will be decided according to the skill level of the participants upon meeting. After much practice, we take a small break, then the group plays the song together as one. At the end of the experience, a professional TAIKO-LAB SENDAI instructor delivers a small performance.
Wadaiko (Japanese taiko drum), a traditional Japanese musical instrument, has an element of sport to it as you use your whole body to play the music. Play the taiko drum as much as you like while enjoying the unique sound, then say “sayonara” (see ya!) to stress! Play your own original song with your friends and family while working up a moderate sweat!
