    Bang out a tune as you learn the practice of taiko, a traditional Japanese drumming art, during a small-group class in Kyoto that’s limited to 12 guests. It’s a great way to get hands-on and learn a new skill during your trip while also discovering a new aspect of Japan’s rich musical culture.

    Meet at the Taiko Center in the afternoon on the day of your lesson. Get an introduced to your instructor before starting with a few pre-session exercises to warm up your body for the drum course. This will also help you avoid any injuries during this introduction to this traditional art form.

    Then begin your drum training. Learn the proper methods to hold the drumsticks, called bachi, before you begin your drum work. Follow your instructor for an introduction to basic drum rhythms, taking you through a series of fun drills to help you get the hang of it. After just a short amount of practice, you’ll be ready to join your drum class to play a basic song.

    You’ll leave your drum class at the end feeling excited, swaying to the rhythms of this energetic, fun-filled Japanese musical art.
