The need to present meaningful multi-cultural educational programs has never been as great as it is today, and enriching the lives of students through arts education has become an increasingly high priority. To provide an instructional method that adds an exciting new dimension to both cultural and musical awareness, Remo has developed the curriculum for World Music Drumming.
The World Music Drumming curriculum by Dr. Will Schmid is made up of 30 sequentially structured lessons that have been thoroughly researched and tested by leading music educators. Because the lessons are designed to be taught in the context of middle school general music classes and include the use of a variety of easy-to-play hand percussion instruments, all students in grades 6 through 8 can participate in this “hands-on” cross-cultural learning experience.
World Music Drumming brings the enjoyment and excitement of music participation while building important life-skills, such as communication, listening, teamwork, discipline and respect for others. In addition, WMD fosters community awareness and an appreciation of cultural diversity through its focus on world music.
Publication of this new teaching method follows more than two years of extensive research and field-testing in actual classroom situations throughout the United States and Canada. Teachers involved in pilot programs have reported better, more educationally integrated general music classes, improved attendance, and fewer discipline problems. Students and parents praise the World Music Drumming curriculum for bringing fun and relevance to their arts education experience.
To complement this innovative teaching method, Remo has developed four special percussion instrument packages that incorporate over 40 years of experience in creating drums and percussion for the world’s leading professional musicians. With their advanced yet authentic designs, Remo World Percussion features attractive, durable, and easy-to-play instruments that fulfill all the requirements of the curriculum for World Music Drumming.
