Interested in Japanese Culture? Played drums in school and want to start again? Or do we sound so interesting you want to become a member with Triangle Taiko? If so, join us! No drumming experience is required. We welcome anyone who likes group activity and is interested in playing taiko drums as an ensemble. Please note that taiko drumming does utilize and focus on good team work and working well with others.
Also, just to let you know, taiko drumming is more than just hitting a drum and keeping a beat. It’s a lot of hard physical work, so wear comfortable clothes and bring some water.
If you want to join, please e-mail Triangle Taiko first to find a good day for you to begin. There are times when we don’t meet or we are practicing for a performance, so we’d like for you to be able to come to a practice when you can actually hit a drum and participate in a practice.
We practice at the Carolina Pines Community Center located at 2305 Lake Wheeler Road Raleigh, NC 27603.
We normally meet on Saturdays to practice; some Fridays may be included. Our practice schedule is as follows: Members from 11:15am until 2:00pm and Special Olympians from 10:00-11:00am. Practice times are subject to change due to the availability of Carolina Pines Community Center.
