Selected as a Certified Project of the "Public-Private Initiative to Disseminate Japanese-Style Education Overseas" of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology
Yamaha Corporation is implementing a project to introduce instrumental music education in primary and secondary schools in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (hereinafter, Vietnam). This initiative has received official recognition under the "Pubiic-Private Initiative to Disseminate Japanese-Style Education Overseas" ("EDU-Port Japan") of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (hereinafter, MEXT).
In Vietnam, no "Course of Study" is provided in the primary and secondary schools for teaching pupils to actually learn to play musical instruments. The music subject currently provides four contents; singing, general knowledge of music, music theory, and solfege.
Yamaha has been spreading the merits of learning music through playing instruments to many schools in various countries and regions. Building on this experience, Yamaha, in cooperation with Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training, began to provide support for the instrumental musical education in January 2016, with an eye to the revisions in the "Course of Study" for primary and secondary schools that are scheduled in 2018.
