Remo Belli Speaks to the Graduate Class at VanderCook College of Music

Music is not only essential for its beauty; it is essential to human health. That was the message of Remo Belli, CEO and founder of Remo, Inc., to the 2007 graduate class during the commencement exercises on July 28, 2007.

“Rhythm, melody, and harmony are embedded very deeply into the human psyche,” said Belli.  “I urge you in music education to develop a system that encourages everyone to participate in a musical activity for its life-enhancement possibilities.”

Belli was awarded a doctor of music honoris causa during the commencement exercises for his many contributions to music and education. Through the Remo Recreational Music Center community drum circles, Remo, Inc. has fostered a love of drumming in thousands of people. The company’s research on the health benefits of drumming was recently recognized by the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function.

    Belli’s ideas have changed the percussion world, and his products have been used by countless artists, from Tony Bennett to the Beatles. Remo, Inc. also provides free commemorative drumheads to the Tournament of Roses Parade bands each. The company was also an early innovator in the creation of the synthetic drum head.
