Jonathan is based at Kagemusha Taiko near Exeter where he has built a thriving taiko community.
He will teach the three workshops around the theme of ‘freeing yourself from the drum’. While of course there will be plenty of actually hitting the drum, he will also introduce arm movements and moving around the drum which is a feature of many forms of popular Taiko.
We believe that taiko should be open to all, however we need to advise participants that it can be a moderately strenuous activity. Please contact us if you have any questions.
