Tampa Taiko is a professional drumming ensemble that has performed for a vast array of audiences, playing at festivals, concert halls, schools, workshops, summer camps, corporate and VIP events. Using a collection of taiko drums made by themselves from discarded wine barrels, Tampa Taiko has developed a dynamic fusion of old and new styles of drumming, bringing a contemporary vibrance to an ancient martial artform.

VIP Events and Grand Openings

Your event becomes larger-than-life when Tampa Taiko performs as you welcome dignitaries or announce the grand opening of a building or a new restaurant. The thunderous sound of the mighty taiko drums is unique, distinctive, and will be a lasting
memory for your guests.

Conferences and Corporate Team-Building

Through active individual participation and the fundamentals of teamwork, the consolidated learning gained during the event is applied to allow your teams to perform a dynamic Japanese Taiko drumming piece. Individuals and teams will end the workshop with a sense of personal accomplishment and the realization of what can be completed as a team. LEARN MORE>>>

Taiko Building Workshops
Construct your own taiko drum at our six-week taiko building workshop. We order used wine barrels and turn them into magnificent musical instruments. Wear work clothes and be prepared to get messy with wood glue, wood stain, varnish and sawdust.

Programs for Schools and Libraries
Tampa Taiko is available to visit your school or library to provide a fun-filled, interactive program that covers the history of taiko, the music of Japan, modern drumming performance, and drum making using discarded wine barrels that have been recycled into taiko drums.   LEARN MORE>>>

Taiko Drumming Lessons
Private instruction and group lessons are available, beginning with an introduction to the essentials of Japanese taiko drumming through active hands-on participation on taiko drums. Students will learn about taiko history and context, full-body warm up, proper stance, grip, taiko vocabulary, and a practice piece that combines these skills. Bring a towel and water and be prepared to sweat! Wear loose, comfortable clothing and wear tennis shoes.
