The World Percussion curriculum at California Institute of the Arts CalArts 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.
- The program of study is designed to be a stimulating and challenging, collaborative learning environment, in which music and sound artists can refine and perfect their already distinctive voices to reach the highest levels of professional practice, while simultaneously exploring new and inspiring, creative territories.
- In addition to CalArts' rich and diverse community and naturally collaborative atmosphere, the Institute provides several programs of study that can be pursued concurrently with a student's chosen metier.
