Farnham Taiko

Music - Movement - Teamwork - Performance - FUN!

Welcome to Farnham Taiko.

Our aim is to make the benefits of Taiko drumming accessible to school children in Farnham and the wider Surrey/Hampshire area. These benefits include:

  • Self confidence
  • Self worth within a team
  • Physical exercise
  • Discipline
  • Focus
  • Teamwork
  • A cultural gateway into Japan
  • Performance skills
  • Musical understanding

Currently we run two Taiko drumming clubs which regularly train and have a strong emphasis on performance:

and provide services to schools to assist in setting up their own Taiko groups:

  • teacher training
  • drums and associated equipment
  • regular visits to clubs

We have helped groups at Hampshire Music Service, Haydon School in Pinner, and Lawford Mead School in Chelmsford to establish and expand their Taiko drumming youth groups.
