House of Circles

Taiko drumming

“Drumming is extremely popular, and rightly so! Drumming is accessible and everyone can use their energy.

The taiko workshops of House of Circles are based on the Japanese art of drumming (Taiko drumming). Dedication, simplicity, teamwork, discipline, respect and, of course, fun are the foundations of the workshop. The drumming workshops are further characterised by physical playing styles, unrelenting energy and a lot of playing on the most unique Taikos in Europe.”
