I had such a great time in the company of lovely people and learnt so much in just one lesson. Doing Taiko Drumming is also great workout ! I strongly recommend it to whoever is interested in more hands-on experiences of Japanese culture!

Review update!
After the first lesson I attended 3 more workshops. I would have signed up for more but unfortunately my stay in Japan was coming to an end. A big big Thank you to everyone!

An awesome 'non-tourist' thing to do in Tokyo

I was determined not to do typical 'touristy' things on our first family visit to Tokyo and this was perfect. Our instructor was great! despite our being a half hour late because we got lost and couldn't work out the directions. (Tip: leave plenty of time to get here. And the building the studio is in does show up on Apple maps but it is down a flight of steps in the basement.) The two hours were well spent and we all really, really enjoyed it. It was a music lesson and a work out. We gained a better appreciation for how difficult Japanese drumming is but it was an absolute blast doing it. Definitely recommended. A highlight for us.

  • The instructor was very patient and very funny!

Great Experience

Reviewed by: Hank Mancini, 2013/04/27

My wife and I booked Introduction to Traditional Japanese Drumming through Veltra as something out-of-the-ordinary to do while visiting Japan. We had a great time!!! Our instructor and the class made us feel very welcome and learning just the very basics of drumming was a lot of fun! Other classmates had all been drumming for 2 to 10 years and this was the very firt time for us, yet they were welcoming and patient! Both my wife and I rated this as the highlight of our trip!
