Discovering Indonesian Music


Year 8 students have been taking part in an Indonesian Gamelan workshop. Gamelan is one of the Year 8 Music topics which all students are currently studying. A full Gamelan orchestra was brought in to school and students were given the opportunity to play a range of these instruments such as the Gongs, Slenthem and Bonang. Students performed in a large group and there was a vibrant atmosphere all day as they were taught the various components to a Gamelan performance whilst also deepening their understanding of this topic.
