TaikOz is Australia's leading taiko drumming group blending traditional Japanese taiko practice with contemporary Australian and Japanese compositions.

Since 1997 TaikOz has developed a reputation for dramatic performances that couple explosive energy and extreme dynamism with refinement and grace. Combining the visceral power of the taiko with the ethereal sound of the bamboo shakuhachi, TaikOz is exploring a synthesis of East and West, old and new.

The fundamental basis of TaikOz’s performance reflects three principal areas of creative endeavour: the creation of new taiko music by Australian and international composers, which is based upon study and performance of drum and flute music from Japan, and the interpretation of music of contemporary Japanese composers such as Maki Ishii and Eitetsu Hayashi. Our aim is not to simply transplant one culture’s music into another’s, but to allow a new form of music to grow upon a sure foundation of understanding and application of Wadaiko technique and spirit.

By joining our community class program for adults and children you will have the opportunity to experience and explore the wonderful music and fascinating history and concepts behind the Art of Wadaiko. We're sure you will enjoy making music with other people and receive a good physical workout at the same time!

In Sydney, TaikOz holds taiko classes on every day of the week over four terms during the year. Most sessions run for 1.5 hours and follow a set curriculum, followed by technical instruction in striking the taiko and practice pieces, as well as movement, dance and song. History and conceptual ideas are also covered over the course of the term.

The TaikOz School classes are located at Level W40, The Ultimo Trade Centre, 42-46 Wattle Street, Ultimo, NSW
