Gamalan Workshop October 2014

Balinese Gamalan Day

In October 2014 we arranged for a traditional Gamalan orchestra to visit the school.  This is a very large set of traditional handmade percussion instruments with large highly decorated bronze gongs and metallophones.  Every class took part in class workshops where they learnt to play the instruments and learn some of the traditional music used.  This fits in with our work on rhythm patterns in music this term.
