Be a part of the legacy of Japanese traditional music with one of the Midwest's leading taiko groups!
What we do
Tsukasa Taiko offers taiko classes and workshops throughout the year as well as the opportunity to learn other traditional Japanese musical instruments, including the shamisen (3-string lute) and shinobue (bamboo flute). Activities take place at the Japanese American Service Committee, located on the northside of Chicago and at our branch location in Arlington Heights.
Our instructors are established, community leaders, professional musicians and recording artists who are nationally and internationally renowned for their expertise. Our instructors are a part of an artistic lineage that can be traced back to the roots of the traditional Japanese performing arts and beyond the classics.
We work closely with schools and other educational institutions to provide special presentations on the history of taiko and Japanese music to audiences of all ages.
Weekly group music classes, private lessons, as well as special workshops are offered throughout the year. Weekly classes are presented in specific sequences.
"Tsukasa Taiko is proud to present the opportunity to learn the Japanese cultural arts. With our professional instructors and our extensive musical histories, we offer the chance for all people to learn about the rich artistic heritage we represent. Our goal is to pass this legacy on to future generations, keeping our culture alive and our community strong."
- Tatsu Aoki, Artistic Director
