Open to Brown and RISD students!


Ever wondered what you’re really capable of?

Great news! We’re holding a series of FREE introductory taiko workshops where we’ll teach you the basics through a fun, simple song. You won’t need ANY prior experience!

Taiko is a group performance art that combines traditional Japanese drumming with elements of the martial arts and modern jazz. It’s rhythmic, it’s intense, and it’s a whole lot of FUN!

If by the end you feel that taiko is the thing for you, we encourage you to try out for the Gendo Taiko team! We’re looking for enthusiasm, dedication, and enjoyment! Most of all we hope that you’ll love taiko just as much as we do!
