Weekly course at St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School
Wilnecote Lane, Tamworth, Staffordshire, B77 2LF
The Tamworth Taiko project includes all the kids, teenage and adult classes held at St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School. The link between the school and Taiko West goes way back and includes events for the Olympic Torch in 2012 and as well as pupils drumming at the Birmingham Symphony Hall in 2013. Sharon Taggart and Julia Hale are the coordinators who have helped establish the whole project since 2014. Sharon is the Assistant Headteacher at the school and Julia is a long-term ex-member of school staff.
After successful fundraising, Tamworth Taiko recently became proud owners of their very own Asano Taiko drum from the top taiko making factory in Japan. For our (lively!) adult evening class, parking is available in the evenings in the school car park and we occasionally get together afterwards for a “social” – it was pizza last time! Members of the adult group get the chance to perform regularly at the Midlands Taiko Day as well as at other shows held at the school.
7.00 – 8.30pm.
Upcoming dates: (Thursdays, School Hall)
January – February 2020
Total cost £40.00 for the 5 week course.
To register for the Course or a Taster Session, please email me direct and we will sort out confirmation of your place together with details of how to pay. It’s okay to enquire even if you have missed the first few weeks.
