This 3-day gamelan series is an excellent introduction into Balinese gamelan music and culture for students in Grades 3 – 9. Classes will focus on technique on a variety of instruments and instruction will be varied based on experience. This is a great opportunity for you to develop your skills if you have already been playing this year, or to get a taste of what it’s like to play in a Balinese gamelan ensemble!

We will conclude our 3-day series with a short performance and workshop in the lobby of the MIT Museum from 12:30PM-1:00PM.

Who can join?
This group is open to children in grades 3 – 9. No prior musical experience necessary. Beginners are encouraged to join and try something new! 🙂

Where do the rehearsals take place?
All of our rehearsals take place in the Endicott World Music Room at MIT (N52-199), which is on the first floor of the MIT Museum Building at 265 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA. Performances will take place at other locations as indicated.
