Join the Taiko Community Alliance!


Whether you’ve been drumming all your life or just picked up your first pair of bachi, you can help to preserve and advance the art of taiko.

When you become a TCA member, you become part of an international community that – through the power of taiko – is creating a world where everyone benefits from the inspiration, motivation, and empowerment that comes from drumming together.

Your membership is tax-deductible and supports TCA’s ongoing operational costs, funds our programming, and ensure’s our long-term sustainability.

Not ready to become a member? Consider making a one-time donation to support our programs, and learn about other ways you help to sustain TCA’s work.

Annual Membership Experience Community

TCA relies on our members to help sustain the organization and ensure the continuation of our programs.  Funds raised through membership supports operational and programming costs.  Highlights of 2022 programming includes the TCA Grant Program, Regional Gathering Series, and the TCA Leadership Program. In addition, look for the return of our flagship Taiko Conference, starting with NATC-Regional in Hawaii for 2023 and Seattle for 2024.

Annual Memberships options:

  • Regular Membership: $50
  • Student Membership: $10 

Sustaining Membership Empower Longevity

TCA’s Sustaining Members provide an unrestricted monthly contribution to the organization, generating a dependable baseline of funding to sustain our ongoing operations while helping TCA to grow and plan for the future.

More convenient than a regular membership, Sustaining Memberships will be automatically renewed each month, meaning you won’t have to worry about renewing your membership next year.

A more cost-effective contribution, Sustaining Memberships start at $5 per month and reduce the administrative time and expenses needed for annual renewals, allowing more of your contribution to go directly into programming.

Lifetime Membership Establish Legacy

Invest in future generations of the taiko community and add your voice to the ranks of those who have made a lifelong commitment to our mission to empower the people and advance the art of taiko.

Lifetime Memberships are a one-time payment (or multiple installment payments over one year) of $1000 and do not expire. Once your Lifetime Membership is paid in full, you are forever considered an active member of the Taiko Community Alliance.
