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. Our gamelan classes offer students ages 5–adult a unique opportunity to learn about another culture through music; no prior musical experience is necessary. Classes run at a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 20 students. Academy gamelan students perform together with Lawrence University gamelan students in at least one concert per year.
