 The KGSC Taiko Program

 

‘Tanoshii Taiko’

 
Taiko is an energetic performance art form played on traditional Japanese instruments by a team of drummers. Taiko combines powerful rhythms and dramatic choreography to express joyful energy, accessible and enjoyable to all. Taiko has as much in common with theatre, dance and martial arts as with a conventional percussion ensemble and is based on key principles that reach far beyond the drum, and provide learning for life. aiko is an energetic performance art form played on traditional Japanese instruments by a team of drummers.

 Lesson Timetables

 
​All Instrumental Music students are given lessons in groups; students are allotted their group (A-Z) at the beginning of the school year. Lessons are held on the same day every week, however every effort is made to ensure the same classes are not missed each week. Therefore, lesson times are rotated throughout the day and students must be aware of their lesson time each week. It is good practice for students to note the correct time in their diaries.
