Gamelan Youth Course - Spring 2020

Part of Gamelan

If you’re aged 11 to 18, come and explore ensemble music-making on our Javanese gamelan.

Over ten weeks, learn to play the gongs, drums and metallophones that make up this beautiful percussion ensemble from Indonesia.

This course is led by expert tutor Andy Channing and is run in partnership with London’s Centre for Young Musicians. The classes bring together young people and students from CYM’s Saturday music school, accompanied by their chaperone.

Fun and relaxed, the sessions require no previous musical experience – just a willingness to take off your shoes, sit on the floor and have fun. Chairs can be provided for those less able to sit on the floor and wheelchairs can also be accommodated.
