World Drum Club is for music educators, music therapists, music facilitators, and anyone who loves World Drumming Music. World Drumming is an important aspect of music education and most music educators are looking for more resources to offer their music students. World Drum Club looks into popular instruments, such as congas, bongos, djembe, dundun, darbuka (doumbek), and hand percussion (shakers, cowbell, agogo, claves, and more). WDC helps music educators tap into the music of the Caribbean, Brazil, West Africa, and beyond, offering tutorials, listening examples, rhythms, and useful information to bring more world drumming into the classroom.
