Description

Music in person, open to all! Learn to play the vibrant bronze instruments, strings, and flutes of the Indonesian Javanese gamelan ensemble. The gamelan is an active performing ensemble, and all students will have opportunities to participate in occasional, exciting collaborative events and concerts. The environment is always friendly and playing gamelan is a great way to escape the stresses of work. This class can be taken for 1 or 2 credits. More advanced players are welcome to take individual lessons on one of the more challenging instruments in the ensemble, or in vocal music.

Intended Audience:

No prior musical experience is required, and the course welcomes beginners and experienced players no matter what your major is.

Note: Learn to play the dynamic, subtle, transcendent music of the Javanese Gamelan! These classes are for people who want to experience a musical tradition totally different from western folk, rock or classical music. The gamelan is an ensemble of gongs, metallophones, drums, xylophone, a few stringed instruments, and singers. No previous knowledge of Indonesia or of music is expected. These courses are open to all students, undergraduate and graduate in all departments of the university. For information contact Susan Walton swalton@walton.
