The Spirit of Kodo Through Online Learning

Kodo’s Taiko Fundamentals

Body Mechanics for O-daiko Expression with Kenta Nakagome

The next Kodo Taiko School course is scheduled to take place in 2025.
More details will be posted on this page after Aug. 2024.

Take online group lessons taught by Kodo members to learn the spirit, physique, and technique that the ensemble has cultivated to date.

Through weekly classes with Kodo over the course of five months, your love for taiko will grow and grow. At Kodo Taiko School, we conduct our lessons in Japanese and English so participants can connect with taiko enthusiasts around the world.

During your course, you can:
・watch the YouTube lesson archives as many times as you like.
・submit performance video tasks to receive feedback from the instructors.
・see updates about lessons and talk with fellow participants, instructors, and staff in a class chat forum online.
As an optional extra, alumni can join us on Sado Island for in-person exchange and taiko playing at our annual taiko camp in September.
