Balinese Gamelan

The term "gamelan" refers to an ensemble of traditional percussion-keyed instruments, including gongs, drums, metallophones, and bamboo flutes from Indonesia. The music is taught by rote and committed directly to memory, allowing for a high degree of interaction between musicians. This is a great opportunity to learn about another culture through music. 

Gamelan Sekar Kemuda

The inter-generational (ages 12-adult) gamelan ensemble meets weekly each semester to explore and experience this unique and fun form of music making. No musical experience is required. Spring session information coming soon!

Children's Gamelan

Children aged 4-11 will learn the basics of Balinese percussion music in a positive and cross-cultural environment. Skills emphasized will be rhythmic coordination, memory, and musical and social awareness of fellow students. Director Dewa Ketut Alit Adnyana brings fifteen years of experience teaching children's ensembles. Caregivers are encouraged to stay to assist their children as may be needed.
