About the Specialization
The World Percussion curriculum draws from a broad range of offerings in the School of Music. Students have access to the the African, North Indian, and Balinese and Javanese Specializations, as well as group and private instruction in Latin percussion, Brazilian percussion, Persian percussion, Arabic percussion and the study of frame drums and other hand-drumming traditions from around the world. At the same time students are working in the contexts of traditional world music, they are also focusing on contemporary experiments in performance, composition and improvisation.
All MFA World Music artists are required to pass a Mid-Residence Recital and a Graduation Jury and Recital in order to obtain the degree.
Detailed curriculum and academic requirements can be found in the online course catalog.
