Teacher Training


Our Values:

  • Everything we do is based on four principles: attitude, technique, kata and ki.
  • We proceed on a basis of openness and uncompromising integrity, respecting ourselves and each other and behaving in a manner consistent with our taiko principles.
  • We believe, and our experience shows, that taiko training and performance can have a beneficial effect on people‚Äôs lives. We continually work for positive outcomes.
  • We seek to understand and teach the history and traditions of taiko, while building our own tradition here in the UK.
  • Taiko is diverse and heterogeneous. It is creative, not defined, prescribed or limited by any authority.
  • We strive for excellence. Equally, we believe that taiko is accessible and we endeavour to include everyone.
