ONLINE TAIKO LESSONS

TAIKO Online Lessons Start from May 5, 2020!

Currently, we all are facing difficult days due to restrictions by COVID-19. 

We hope our program, with making the Sounds of TAIKO together now and future, will give you a time of fun and enhance the power of life.

Basically, the goal of the on-line programs is having an enjoyable time learning Taiko drumming

as part of your home learning in current situation, and also as lifelong learning which starting from now.

Furthermore - depending on your location -  who complete the settled level of programs would be able to participate in "Community Performances" with the instructors and other regular class students in the real world.

In addition, independent of the scheduled Kids lessons of below, we can also accept requests for private and group lessons for school groups or any groups who would love to learn the Taiko Drumming.

Feel free to ask us any questions about Online programs. We are happy to talk with you soon! 

 

Welcome to the world of TAIKO!

​*PC版では日本語でのご挨拶もご覧いただけます

​COVID-19による3月からの思いがけない長い制限の中、いかがおすごしでしょうか・・?

太鼓の学校では、練習場所が閉鎖された3月中旬より、オンラインに切り替えて太鼓レッスンを継続しています。

この困難な時を楽しみながら乗り越えるための支えの一つとなり, そしてこれからの長い学びに繋がれば・・・と、

世界のどこからでも参加できる

「太鼓オンラインレッスン」

を始めることにいたしました。

レッスンを楽しむことはもちろん「制限解除後の演奏への参加」も目標としていただけます。(お住いの地域にもよりますが・・・)

とくに、急に学校が閉鎖され、年度末の楽しみも中止され、友達と会うこともままならなくなってしまった子供たちは 

様々な楽しみを我慢し、時にいらだちと不安の中にあってもなお、きっと、精いっぱいご家族と共に頑張って過ごしているのでは・・と思います。 

多くの子供たちが抱えるストレスの緩和、保護者のみなさまのご自宅での学習計画の一助となり、ご家庭での新しい会話トピックとなれれば、と

「キッズオンライン太鼓レッスン」を始めることにいたしました。

画面の中とはいえ、定期的にお友達と会って一緒に太鼓を楽しむことが、

レッスンを受けていただく子供たちと見守る保護者の皆さまに、笑顔になれる時間をお届けできれば嬉しく思います。

 


下記のスケジュール、年齢、お住いの場所に関わらず、

プライベートレッスン、太鼓グループへのレッスン、あるいは、学校のクラス単位、お友達の集まりなどグループレッスンもアレンジしております。

ご希望、ご質問など、お気軽に日本語でお知らせください。

皆さまが健康に過ごされること、一日も早く制限が解除され、また集まって笑い合える日が来ることを切に願っております。

再会の日まで、どうぞ、くれぐれもご自愛の上お過ごしください。

お知らせ:ソイソース誌上にて週5日間レッスンの日程をご案内させていただいておりましたが、子供たちのオンライン学習スケジュールを検討し、

ワンセッション4日間、週一回のレッスンを基本として設定いたしました。ご理解のほど、よろしくお願い申し上げます。
