TRIAL LESSONS

"VOICE from participants" 

Why I like Taiko? 
Personally I felt beside music, is a form of personal development. 

As when you are playing, you can you train your mind to focus, your body to have a good posture, your memory (can be quite challenging for me), your coordination, determination as not to give up when it gets tough, stamina as is just like exercising and team effort as we’re not playing alone. 

Most important, when I am playing, my mind is 100% in it, so the mind is resting yet working. 

The is good for Team Bonding
