Beginners Welcome!

Taiko is all about feeling good. You will play big drums, with big sticks in the best-equipped taiko studio in Europe, taught by leading members of Kagemusha Taiko Group. You will learn some choreographed routines that are fun to play and which are completely absorbing – providing a complete escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life. You’ll find it invigorating and re-energising.

Have Fun Playing Taiko

The more you put in, the more you get out of it, which means that taiko is exhilarating rather than tiring. Our weekends provide the perfect balance of physical and mental effort with time for pure relaxation, whether you are floating in the warmth of the hydrotherapy pool in the evening, indulging in a full body massage, or perhaps taking a leisurely stroll around the peaceful grounds at Seale Hayne or a longer walk on Dartmoor. On Sunday morning there is a yoga session (suitable for beginners): the perfect way to stretch, breathe, and prepare for the day.

The Taiko Centre at Seale Hayne: TQ12 6NQ

The Taiko Centre is based on the campus of Seale Hayne, in the countryside formerly part of the University of Plymouth. The Dame Hannah Rogers Trust now run the site as an accessible multi-arts venue, also providing onsite accommodation in comfortable double rooms with en suite facilities, and a bistro and bar that serves great meals, including excellent vegetarian and vegan options. Eating and drinking together is all part of the experience! Short walks, with spectacular 360 degree views can be taken directly from the Taiko Centre. There’s everything you need for a wonderful weekend retreat.
