In these drills, Hibikus’ instructor Maya Minowa teaches three ways that you can practice at home. The focus here is “how to play efficiently”. Maya will show you how to use your body and what to be aware of when hitting taiko. The sound you make can vary a lot depending on how you hit. A good taiko sound requires that you first let go of all unnecessary tensions, before hitting in a natural movement that doesn’t stress your body. This also allows you to play with ease, for longer. It is so important to check our form regularly!
