Eva was a wonderful teacher! In only two hours, she made me feel like I was a taiko maestro. It's too bad that I'm leaving Japan soon because I would definitely be interested in further lessons. Very high recommendation!

This Taiko drum lesson was so much more than I expected it to be! I thought we might drum a few beats on the drums and hear some stories about the history of Taiko. It was a full two hours of rhythms and choreography. I was able to do so much more than I would have expected, and had a blast! Tip: wear comfortable clothing and especially shoes that allow plenty of movement. Athletic gear would have been much better than my sandals and skinny jeans. Bring water. Eva has been drumming for over 20 years and is a very good teacher who speaks excellent English. I highly recommend the experience.
