Taiko Performance

Kagemusha Taiko have always taken the view that taiko is ultimately about performance. There are huge benefits to be found in the process of learning, and these are of real importance too. But one of the great joys of taiko is being able to share what you do with other people – whether you are in a primary school group playing a beginners’ taiko piece to others in your school, or a professional group performing in a theatre or concert hall to hundreds or even thousands of people at a time.
Performance provides a focus for learning, in fact performance is part of the learning process. It provides an opportunity for celebration and reward. And if you play taiko, it’s the best way of explaining to other people what it is that you do, because photos, videos and websites can only go so far!
Besides encouraging performance as part of our work in schools, Kagemusha Taiko manage two different adult performing groups:
