This book aims to develop and train dissociation and independence in the use of both arms when playing taiko. While the exercises require the use of more than one taiko, and can be good training for those interested in playing taiko-set, it is not specifically a taiko-set book.

The main idea of this Volume 1 is, while having fun, to work motor independence, thus developing and learning to control the body and mind, improving its efficiency.

Scores are organized by difficulty level. The book starts with basic combinations, increasing in complexity until reaching the last, with a more advanced level. In this Volume 1, we will only use two drums, however, there are infinite combinations that can be made with each score by adding more drums.

In the beginning, you will find 4 training sheets. With them, we aim to train different combinations separately before starting with the exercises.

The book has 25 scores thought to the development of dissociation, a first step to be able to play on set. Each score (including the training sheets) have their respective audios.


  • Motor skills
  • Independence
  • Multisensory perception
  • Reading musical notation
