Gain hands-on experience learning about and playing the glorious and complex four-keyed Balinese bronze angklung orchestra. Gamelan angklung is traditionally performed in Balinese temple ceremonies and cremation rituals. In these classes Wayne Vitale—a composer, performer, and scholar whose work has focused on Balinese music for the past thirty years—will teach basic skills and techniques while you gain experience putting them into practice playing a classical angklung instrumental piece.
