Dear all

We'd like to tell you about exciting opportunities for Japanese Taiko drumming in schools. Our group have held educational Taiko drumming workshops and projects since 1995, introducing thousands of pupils to Taiko every year.

The core of our workshops are rhythm, movement, teamwork, performance and enjoyment.

Many of our workshops have illustrated the potential of Taiko drumming to increase motivation and self esteem, benefiting pupils both personally and academically.

We've identified just some of the benefits to pupils' personal development:

Our workshops fulfil many of the teaching aims within national curriculum subjects including:

Our approach also reinforces Learning to Learn strategies and fits well with the Assessment for Learning model, encouraging pupils to learn by being critical, reflective and drawing on their existing knowledge.

And because Taiko drumming links so many disciplines, there is great potential for making this a cross-curricular event at your school.

We cater for children and young people of all ages and can offer a mixture of workshops to suit different groups.

From a single day of drumming to an extended programme over a number of weeks, whatever your school's requirements we can tailor our workshops and projects to bring out the best in your pupils.

For further information please visit our website www.taikomeantime.com/schools or phone 07092 200417.

Kind Regards

Mark Alcock, Taiko Meantime
