A Taiko Drumming Experience for Year 5

Ichi…Ni…San…Shi…

Year 5 were given a fantastic traditional Japanese musical experience today – with every child taking part in an hour long Taiko drumming workshop. We learnt how to play the drums, some Japanese language, about the culture and respect associated with the drums and also how much of a physical workout playing them gives your body! Expect some aching limbs tomorrow…

A few of the many photos below (though sadly none available of a few of the teachers sneaking down for their own mini-workshop at lunchtime).
