You Can Learn to Teach Taiko!

Kagemusha Taiko’s principle-based approach enables you to get started quickly. “Taiko is all about doing simple things well.” In this respect, it’s as much an attitude as anything else.
 
This might sound fanciful, but we are not suggesting that you can become a brilliant taiko player and teacher overnight. Jonathan Kirby, artistic director of Kagemusha Taiko and the company’s senior teacher, is himself a fully-qualified teacher as well as being author of books about learning and teaching taiko that have sold worldwide. With more than 10 years’ experience in helping people start their own classes and groups, we have a clear view of the criteria for success when it comes to starting a taiko programme in school.
 
To start teaching in your school you need enthusiasm, perseverence and resilience – which are probably qualities you yourself seek to develop in the children you teach. Next, you need some basic training from Kagemusha Taiko, along with resources in the form of curriculum, repertoire and affordable drums. We can help you with all of these.
 
Taiko cannot be taught successfully by someone who is not enthusiastic about it. To see whether or not taiko is for you, why not try our bi-monthly Taste of Taiko workshop? You could also book Kagemusha Taiko to deliver workshops as part of an INSET day. Or book us to deliver a workshop that can simply be for fun, in and of itself.
