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 2014, Grand Vision has partnered with leading taiko instructors to bring the art form to a variety of locations in San Pedro and Wilmington.
Mondays February-April 2021
Taiko Artist ManMan 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 offered in-person and streamed live via Zoom to allow for all to participate safely.
