Private Group Taiko Lessons: 4-week series this fall at Studio RAW!

Fall Classes are now full and registration is closed.   We will be offering additional classes in January of 2022

About our classes:


Taiko drumming is fun, exciting, and can be physically demanding. Benefits of enrolling in private group lessons:  

  1. Classes can be tailored to group interest and skill-level, from beginner (no taiko experience) to advanced.

  2. Small number of participants will ensure COVID safety.


Classes will include warm-up, taiko drumming exercises and learning a song (optional).




Registration is required and space is limited - 1 group may register per series. All ages, skill levels & abilities welcome. Anyone under the age of 12 must be registered with an accompanying adult. Please see the list below for all available 4-week Series:

COVID Safety Measures: 


Groups are for 5 participants maximum + 1 teacher. Group participants do not need to be in a pod, but must be comfortable sharing space indoors with one another. Masks are mandatory for all during classes and all participants will be required to fill out COVID self-assessment surveys.


Studio RAW accessibility: 


While RAW made every effort to secure a wheelchair accessible space, viable spaces were extremely limited to us due the noise-allowance requirements of our taiko activities. We regret that Studio RAW is not wheelchair accessible at this time.

  • Studio RAW is located on the top/second floor of a low-rise building, and unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible. To access the studio, visitors must walk up one flight of stairs (20 steps) with railing. The stairwell is 45” wide. 

  • Studio RAW is a low-scent space and RAW regularly uses unscented cleaning products.

  • There is one small single stall, all-gender washroom in the studio.
