Taiko drumming is a Japanese art-form that is very engaging, quick to learn and can be especially beneficial to students who have difficulty regulating their emotions or who display challenging behaviour. It is a spectacular and very accessible medium with a rich cultural legacy that has the additional benefits of engendering confidence, team work skills, concentration and the ability to regulate emotions amongst students. This CPD session will offer delegates the opportunity to try out taiko and pick up a range of activities and approaches for teaching taiko in school settings. The session is suitable for complete beginners but more experienced Taiko Teachers are also welcome.
Network meetings are free of charge but places must be booked.
