Intro to Taiko for Parkinson's

  • San Jose Taiko Studio 150 South Montgomery Street San Jose, CA 95110 United States (map)

This workshop for individuals with Parkinson's will be led by Performing Members of San Jose Taiko and Sydney Shiroyama, consulting OT.  The practice of taiko drumming originates from Japan, and involves a unique blend of group drumming, dance, theater, and martial arts.  Taiko players use choreographed, full-body movements while striking the drums to create a powerful display of strength and connectedness to others.  The supportive and safe environment at San Jose Taiko's studio will allow for a gentle introduction to taiko drumming and help promote physical activity, cognitive engagement, and social support through a fun cultural activity.

$25/participant (plus processing fee)

To protect the drums, we like to keep the studio floor clean and request that you remove your shoes upon entering the practice space.  Accommodations can be made if you are unable or uncomfortable to do so.  You are welcome to bring shoes with clean soles ("indoor" shoes) to prevent slipping.  Contact with any questions or concerns.
