Miyake Taiko is comprised of a few simple and catchy rhythm patterns, so you can learn and enjoy playing it after only a couple of lessons. At our practice sessions, all levels practice together, encouraging each other and working towards individual goals such as stamina & form. This style of drumming is a fun team workout.
