Now's your chance to learn taiko drumming with Pittsburgh Taiko!
On Sundays starting September 15, Pittsburgh Taiko will hold a four-week continuation class for people who are interested in joining our performing group or anyone who wants to just give taiko a try. You must have attended a previous beginner class to attend.
Taiko combines energetic hits with calm focus, balances group unity with individual expression, and requires both power and subtlety.
For more information, see www.pittsburghtaiko.org/beginners-workshops.
Please note that the studio is only accessible by stairs.
