Taiko Rhythms

Defined by its dynamic playing style, Taiko involves choreographed movement which many identify with Japanese martial arts. It is noted that the principles of Taiko can help with developing respect for one's self, other players, and the instruments in order to bring about a discipline of both body and mind.

Aimed at KS3, the programme consists of 10 x 45 minute lessons with a class size group, use of a set of Taiko drums for the duration of the project and teacher training for school based teachers. Using CPD we could support the class teacher to use the drums with further pupils within the school.

Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT)

Leicestershire Music offer a variety of whole class instrument tuition projects to schools on instruments such as guitar, ukulele, brass, percussion (djembe, tabla, samba, taiko), steel pans, woodwind (clarinet, flute and saxophone) and strings (violin, viola and cello). These are typically 45 minutes long and delivered over 30 weeks of the school year.

We understand that secondary schools require flexibility in approach, and we will support schools in making these projects work for your schools needs and requirements where possible.
