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. We believe in creating unique opportunities for people to meet their neighbors and engage in their community in a new way. Come play with us!
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.
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.
Classes are open to all skill levels and abilities, from beginners to seasoned musicians, and fees are on a sliding scale. Classes are recommended for ages 12 and up, children must either participate with a guardian or have a participation waiver signed before class.
