You can come for either session or both.

From Fukui to Glangrwyney…Introductory 3-week course.
Heather Murray, from Taiko Wales, was awarded a grant this year from the Arts Council Wales to travel to Japan and train with Taiko master Kurumaya-Sensei. Drawing from his wisdom and artistry, the course is based on the unique ‘Hokkuriko’ style of Taiko, developed by Sensei in the Fukui area of Japan. There is an emphasis on etiquette, focus and discipline. We begin with a short, Zazen meditation to connect with our still, creative centres; we then integrate movement, playful sticking and freestyle. You need to bring your enthusiasm, a level of fitness and a sense of timing.
We’ll explore ‘Ki’, the Japanese concept of life force, and ‘Ma’, the concept of silence and space, as we practice the deeply respectful ways of this tradition.
Suitable for those new to Taiko and for players keen to develop their skills. Payment in advance please – contact Heather to make a booking on heathermurray125@gmail.com
