Our Taiko Development Project continues in Leicester City Schools. Bullfrog Arts work in partnership with Kagemusha Taiko to deliver specialist Taiko sessions in schools identified by the Virtual School Team and LeicesterShire Schools Music Service. Taiko is very engaging and can be accessed on many levels making it an ideal activity for young people who are in challenging circumstances. Feedback from the Taiko project is always very positive and has really demonstrated progression in many areas for the young people involved, specifically building self-confidence, managing stress and modifying behaviour. We are currently working on an exciting partnership project which will be taking some of our young people on a Taiko Residential in Devon which will be an incredible experience for all involved. Taiko groups have been used to ensure 2 of our year 6 students make a smooth transition into their new secondary schools. This involved running Taiko workshops in their old schools and we will be setting up Taiko groups in each of their new schools.
