Taiko Drumming

Our Japanese Taiko drumming group has been very fortunate to work alongside the Mugen Taiko Dojo drummers at the Brindley as part of the Warrington and Halton Music Hub Taiko Residency. The drummers, who are based in Scotland, are the only professional touring Taiko group in Europe, so working with them was a fantastic opportunity. The Year 7 and 8 Taiko group learnt some new techniques as well as improving and developing one of our existing pieces. The Mugen Taiko players thought we were amazing! The project lasts for two weeks, and the group are travelling around schools in Halton and Warrington to work with Primary, Secondary and College students. The Heath was a host school for four feeder primaries and the whole school resonated to the sound of the Taiko drums! Well done to everyone in Year 7 and 8 who was involved with the project.
