Quaver's World Music
< Back

Quaver’s World Music is an interactive map of songs and instruments from every continent. It’s a growing library that currently includes over 140 songs and in-depth content on 15 unique percussion instruments.

Teachers help students learn the various songs and types of percussive instruments from around the world!

Choose SONGS to explore a continent and a growing library of folk songs which originated there.

Each World Music Song includes:

  • Map: A visual representation of the country or region where the song was first introduced
  • Hub of Activities: Launch the song to access the ClassPlay Song Hub - full of interactive elements to break down the song musically and make connections to other subjects.

Or choose INSTRUMENTS to break down percussion instruments by type - from Idiophones to Membranophones - and explore 15 instruments in more depth!

Each World Music Instrument includes:

  • An Introduction Video: Quaver dons costumes, accents, and more to introduce each instrument, country of origin, and how it produces sound.
  • 360° View: Examine the instrument from every possible angle - bringing 11 new percussion instruments into the music classroom.
  • How to Play It: Quaver breaks down the techniques for playing each instrument for teachers to instruct at a pace that’s right for their class.
  • Challenge: A rhythm is performed via video for students to recreate - at three levels of challenges for each instrument - and a map of the notation is easily revealed.

Also included: animated maps, listening examples of each instrument, and instructions for creating handmade instruments in the classroom!

Quaver’s World Music is a teacher-led resource included as streaming video in both Essentials and QK-5 Licenses.
