Congratulations! You are the custodian of the Moorambilla Voices Regional Taiko Ensemble. You are entrusted to take care of and maintain these beautiful Australian-made taiko, and keep them in perfect condition for all children to learn and play on.
Before you start, please take the time to listen to ALL of these videos, which will show you how to look after them. Ian Cleworth, Artistic Director of Taikoz, shares his expertise on how to look after each taiko.
It’s important to keep them tuned. After each performance you need to detune them to loosen the tension on the skins. Then before the performance you will need to tune them, or tighten them up again.
