Additional information:

The Great Lakes Taiko Center opened its doors in January of 2010 and is located in Novi, Michigan. Our mission is to share the joy and excitement of Taiko Drumming with all ages through classes, educational presentations, workshops and performances.

The Great Lakes Taiko Center sponsors two performing groups, Raion Taiko and the Godaiko Drummers. Both groups can be seen at various events throughout the year all around Michigan.

Center director and head instructor, Brian Sole, was trained in taiko drumming in Ishikawa, Japan under the instruction of the members of the world famous taiko group, Hono-O-Daiko 炎太鼓 at the Asano Foundation for Taiko Culture and Research (浅野太鼓文化研究所).
