Description

Bring your family and friends to play our Javanese gamelan percussion orchestra. Artists as varied as Claude Debussy, Olivier Messiaen, Steve Reich and Björk have taken inspiration from gamelan music, and now you can learn to play this beautiful instrument. Regarded as one instrument but played by many people, the gamelan comprises gongs, metallophones and drums and generates rich, sonorous and mesmerising sounds. Playing the gamelan is a rewarding musical and social experience, inspiring self-confidence, improving coordination, sharpening listening skills and encouraging interaction and team-building.
