Taiko in Education


Watch the Video: “What is taiko? Taiko is a vehicle for teaching everything that is important in life.”

Kagemusha Taiko staff and group members have been teaching children in schools since 1998, nationwide and even in Japan! We have always found that young people love playing taiko, but we believe it’s what they learn through taiko that is most important. This is why we always teach on the basis of our four taiko principles, which are applicable in all areas of life:


A3 Attitude
A3 Kata
A3 Technique

A3 Ki


Taiko is hugely enjoyable. Sometimes having fun as a reward for physical and mental effort can be an end in itself. Taiko has the additional advantage of presenting no limits to the ambition or creativity of the gifted and talented, but it is also highly accessible. This means it can reach children who do not normally get involved with music in schools. We have worked on short and long-term projects that have resulted in remarkable outcomes for many children.
