Community Classes

Grand Vision contributes to the cultural life of our vibrant community through arts partnerships and innovative programming for adults that inspires self-expression and meaningful encounters with music and culture. Come play with us!

Team Taiko

Team Taiko is Grand Vision Foundation’s signature community music-making program.

We believe in creating unique opportunities for people to meet their neighbors and engage in their community in a new way. Making music makes a community! Classes are open to all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned musicians, and fees are on a sliding scale.

Taiko is a Japanese traditional drumming practice that, over the last several decades, has become a global phenomenon. Since 2013, Grand Vision has partnered with leading taiko instructors to bring the art form to a variety of locations in San Pedro and Wilmington.

2022 Sessions:
Summer Mondays at 7pm June-July
Fall Mondays at 7pm October-November

At the Grand Annex
434 W. 6th St, San Pedro

Taiko Artist Man Man Mui guides participants toward a repertoire of drumming techniques and patterns. Sessions include developing rhythmic sensibility, body awareness, breath and strength training as students make music together as a team.
