World Music Drumming (WMDr) Curriculum by Dr. Will Schmid is a critically-acclaimed 30-lesson instructional program. WMDr is aimed primarily at middle school general music, yet is applicable for grades 3 through adult, including either high school or corporate team building. WMDr brings the enjoyment and excitement of music participation while building important life skills such as communication, listening, teamwork, discipline, and respect for others. To complement this teaching method Remo, Inc. has developed four percussion packages of attractive, durable, and easy-to-play instruments for classes ranging from 22 to 30 students. Included with each package is a complete classroom kit containing a teacher's book, student enrichment book, and a DVD. Dr. Schmid recommends key-tuned drums for use in ensemble playing.
