Learning the Dageikyoku
…If a North American taiko group really desires to play the Dageikyoku (Oedo Sukeroku Daiko repertoire), they are requested to contact Seiichi Tanaka of the San Francisco Taiko Dojo as North American representative of Oedo Sukeroku. Oedo Sukeroku Daiko has issued guidelines by which Oedo can be sure the Dageikyoku is being performed to their satisfaction, as well as insure that proper credit and revenue is given to the group.
…However, Oedo Sukeroku Daiko is very interested in spreading the Oedo style, and regularly gives workshops to that effect. The basics of the classic Oedo Sukeroku movements and rhythms are taught to students worldwide. Oedo repertoire is not taught at these workshops, as Oedo hopes that each group will use these basics to create their own original material.
