Balinese Gamelan Workshops


A gamelan is a set of bronze metallophones and tuned gongs indigenous to Indonesia, where it is played for temple ceremonies and to accompany dance, drama and shadow puppet plays. There are many different types; ours is from Bali. The music is formed largely of repeating patterns that can be quickly learned and played as a group by most participants regardless of age or musical experience.

Gamelan is great for developing:

  • listening skills
  • group music making
  • composition techniques
  • an understanding of wider cultural studies
