On Thursday 23rd March, FIII – FVI girls experienced playing Javanese gamelan instruments in an action-packed workshop. Each house group learned about the traditions of Indonesian music and used wooden gamels to play the authentic metallophones of various sizes. Some pupils were lucky enough to experiment with the three sizes of gong that form part of gamelan orchestra. All pupils rehearsed rhythm patterns and then made their own compositions in groups. Further lessons using the ideas from this inspiring workshop will follow.
