Expert Instruction

kaDON instructors Kenny Endo, Shoji Kameda and Kaoru Watanabe are three of the taiko world's most respected artists. Kenny Endo has over 35 years of experience as one of the pioneers of the art form and was the first non-Japanese national to receive a natori (professional stage name) in hogaku hayashi. Shoji Kameda is a Grammy nominated musician and one of the taiko world's most performed composers. Kaoru Watanabe is a former artistic director of KODO and North America's leading practitioner of the shinobue.

Technique and Repertoire

kaDON features instructional courses focused on basic technique and exercises in a variety of playing styles. Repertoire courses feature a piece that you can learn and perform. Both kinds of courses will include downloadable play along tracks, exercises and scores to make learning as fun and as easy as possible. We’ll be adding new lessons and content regularly!

Whether you are new to the art form or an experienced group leader kaDON will have something for you.
