Taiko drumming in Sydney

I'm a student of taiko drumming and through the musical group TaikOz they have a group of advanced students who take their playing to the next level, which includes performing publicly. Last year they won a very prestigious taiko competition in Japan and have been invited back to perform in a "past winners" concert. So a few weeks before they left they played at St Stephens Hall, Newtown as a rehearsal.

I have only posted a handful of drawings from the night, mostly showing all the different types of taiko (drums) and styles of playing. If you would like to see more please visit my blog or flickr site. Cheers!

  4. Hi Meegan. I'm a teacher at a state school in Qld with a small group of students who have begun learning taiko in their lunch break. I love your taiko sketches and wondered if you sell the images for use? I would like to make some t-shirts for the kids to be as their Taiko "uniforms" for school performances and love the idea of putting one of these on the shirt. How do I contact you? Kylie
