Our Outreach program has been involved with students in Early Years, Middle Years and High School as well as Day Care programs, Literacy Evenings and sessions with both students and staff at the Manitoba School  for the Deaf. We also held several 6 week sessions at the Reh-Fit Centre for participants that were interested in an alternative aerobic activity. While JobWorks (alternative High School) existed, we offered some sessions  that they called their Phys. Ed program which were held at the Japanese  Canadian Cultural Center at 180 McPhillips Street. We also enjoy being invited out to share the joy of Taiko at your address!

The session’s length can be determined by the age of the participants, purpose of the session or time available. In an hour we can manage a short demo, a brief history, a warm up, taiko basics so that everyone is able to drum safely, and the learning of a taiko song. A 75 minute session allows for some variations and more playing time. Regardless of the length of the session, our aim is to include everyone,
to have fun learning something new and to experience the joy of playing taiko together.
