Since 1996, the World Music Drumming Curriculum has transformed lives and built community through ensemble drumming, singing, moving, playing xylophones and recorders.

Music educators, church musicians, and community-based music leaders experience the curriculum through summer professional development workshops with training by our faculty.  By learning the World Music Drumming framework, participants return to their schools and settings ready to include the lessons and units within the curriculum, with students and participants.

As a result of experiencing World Music Drumming with a qualified teacher/leader, students develop a range of character-building strengths such as focus, listening, teamwork, and respect while strengthening musical skills built through aural tradition.

The World Music Drumming Curriculum is now taught in over 20,000 schools worldwide as well as in community outreach programs and venues.
