Come Practice with us!

Dondoko Taiko practices on Sunday evenings at the Fort Worth Japanese Society.  We divide our practice times into three separate classes so that everyone can feel comfortable in their Taiko experience.  You may come for just one class, or stay for them all! 

If you have no musical experience, please sign up for the Beginner class to start.  Beginner Classes are started in January, June and August.  If you are interested, please watch for the Beginner Class registration link in the TOP menu bar.  If you want to see a beginner class before you register, please contact us for an available date and time to observe.

Taiko classes are open to anyone age 14 and up!

You do not need to bring Bachi (taiko drum sticks) to your first class.

Experienced musicians and those who have completed the beginner course will enjoy a 1-month trial period of the Intermediate and Advanced classes and after that, classes are $20 per month (includes all three classes).

Non-skid shoes or bare feet

Comfortable workout clothes
