About taiko

Taiko is the art of Japanese drumming. We offer classes for adults and children. We accept new students in September on a space-available basis, and the session runs until July, when we do our final performance at the MVBT Obon festival.   Learn the art of taiko and perform at various Temple events and some external events.
