Join the thousands of schools who have enjoyed an Education Group workshop.
Ask an expert a question about a workshop.
A gamelan orchestra usually consists of a number of gongs, drums and metallophones made up of various shapes and sizes. They are commonly made of materials such as bronze, iron and even bamboo.
Our gamelan orchestras originate from Bali and are made up of 3 different sized gongs known as ageng, kempul and kenong. Our three metallophones carrying the core melodies include the saron, peking and demung whilst drums and bells are incorporated to maintain the rhythmic flow.
During the workshop several pieces of music are introduced and every child plays an instrument. The resulting melody is truly memorable!
