Takadimi can help most anyone learn to understand and perform rhythm better.

Takadimi works like solfege, but for rhythm.  It assigns a distinct syllable for each attack point within a beat.  The beat is always spoken on ta.  The division of the beat is always spoken on ta - di in simple meter and ta - ki - da  in compound meter. 

The second division (or subdivision) is always spoken with ta - ka - di - mi in simple meter and ta - va - ki - di - da - ma in compound.  Each attack point, then, has a distinct syllable. 

From these syllables, we create patterns based on where within the beat each note occurs.

For examples and a simple explanation please see the “Takadimi short guide”.
