Gamelan Advanced Course - Spring 2020

Part of Gamelan

Put your gamelan experience to the test with our advanced course.

Join an advanced community course for gamelan musicians with approximately four years of playing experience or more.

Over this ten-week course directed by expert tutor Peter Smith, students focus on specialist 'soft-instrument' and vocal techniques within the gamelan.

Participants develop a wider range of classical, popular and contemporary repertoire, performance practice in different regional styles, and Javanese dance and shadow-puppetry accompaniment.
