Taiko for Schools, Volume 1, Fundamentals

 
Published in February 2018, this is a new book by Jonathan Kirby. It provides support for a set of 21 short instructional videos, designed for use by school teachers in the UK, and suitable for showing in the classroom.

The suite of short videos was produced in consultation with teachers in North Devon, and was commissioned by Devon Music Education Hub, Taiko Outreach Programme for Schools, working in partnership with Kagemusha Taiko.

Purchase of the book will provide the buyer with the password needed to use the videos. The videos cover taiko foundations, base rhythms, simple taiko motifs and some extras. The first page of videos can be found here

Please go to our Taiko Store if you would like to buy a copy of the book.

Jonathan Kirby’s Taiko Drumming Book

A few copies remain of this book, published in partnership with Drums for Schools, price £20 GBP plus postage and packing. Please email us to make a purchase.

It provides ten lesson plans, in a step-by-step process working through taiko basics to the performance of a simple composition. A DVD is included, showing Jonathan teaching a group of children the lessons covered in the book.

For those who simply want to cut to the chase, and teach the composition without covering the taiko basics, we have a free video which is available on our website.
