About The School of TAIKO

We believe that learning the TAIKO is not only for experiencing Japanese Culture. TAIKO makes healthy bodies, tough spirits and noble mind. TAIKO also develops a good sense of rhythm and harmony: we call it "WA".

The School of TAIKO was established by Ringtaro Tateishi and Asako Tateishi in October 2009. Based in Seattle & Bellevue, The School of TAIKO provides Performances and Programs with TAIKO drums and other traditional Japanese musical instruments.

Through TAIKO classes, education, and public performance, we encourage mutual understanding among different cultures and generations. We share our own cultural roots in positive ways while spreading Japanese culture.

Our performance and practice piece for school are using numbers which composed by Ringtaro Tateishi
with respect for Japanese spirits and movements from ancient times.
We hope you can feel the mind and spirits of Japanese/Asian through learning / performing TAIKO with us.
