Katsugi Taiko / Chappa
People tend to think playing katsugi okedo taiko—a barrel drum carried on a shoulder strap—is very difficult or not for everyone. However, Yosuke believes everyone can become good at playing this style of taiko. The reason? Yosuke says he is proof that if you practice, you can get good at it, because he was really bad at playing katsugi okedo in the beginning. It’s a challenging style, which means Yosuke’s “Everyone can play Katsugi Okedo Workshop” is very popular in Japan. With his unique way of teaching, you can expect to improve your single-sided and double-sided drumming in this workshop
