Celebrate the music of the Caribbean, Brazil and West Africa! World drumming has become very popular in recent years. Knowing how to identify, play and organize a variety of drums and percussion instruments is key to the success of world drumming instruction. World Rhythms provides a complete curriculum beginning with authentic instruments, tuning and techniques, through playing different rhythms, creating ensembles, performances, and addressing special needs. Educators with prior world drumming experience will discover new materials, techniques and strategies, while those new to world music will gain solid foundational skills needed for success. World Rhythms is a complete and holistic music program that integrates drumming, ukulele, Orff instruments and movement. You’ll learn how to leverage the power of music and draw upon music therapy strategies and techniques to address social and emotional goals while helping students with special needs create successful experiences.
