Yamaha Musical Instrument Education in Vietnam

170202_YamahaVietNamYamaha Musical Instrument Education in Vietnam Selected as Certified Project by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)

 

Introductory musical instrument education in elementary and middle schools in Vietnam by Yamaha (President: Takuya Nakata) has been selected as a certified project of Edu-Port Nippon “Japanese-style education for overseas venture project.”

 

In Vietnam, the government elementary and middle school music curriculum has not included learning to play instruments. Music education in Vietnam has been limited to singing and learning the names and characteristics of musical instruments through listening to music.

 

Yamaha has been proclaiming the merits of playing musical instruments in music education classrooms around the world. The company started introductory musical instrument education at elementary and middle schools in Vietnam in January 2016, in collaboration with Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training, to meet the country’s altered government curriculum guidelines.

 

MEXT started Edu-Port Nippon “Japanese-style education in overseas venture project” last year. This project promotes the Japanese-style education, which is a subject of interest around the world, through Japanese public-private partnerships. After this period, Yamaha will be starting negotiations and involvement with local officials, receiving partial cost assistance, and verifying and sharing achievements and tasks.

 

Yamaha will be providing an opportunity to realize the wonder of music, including curriculum guidelines for learning to play musical instruments, teacher training, and text book revision in collaboration with organizations such as Yokohama University, as they promote Japanese-style education in this overseas venture model in Vietnam.
