Gamelan workshop

Year 6 girls enjoy a Gamelan workshop

6W and 6S recently attended gamelan workshops at the Bolton Music Centre.

They learnt that the gamelan orchestra is a collection of tuned percussion instruments and drums from Indonesia which are played by community groups, often to accompany shadow puppets to illustrate a story.

The girls had an enjoyable time learning the various parts played by the different instruments and by the end of the session were able to play the complete piece of music.
