Hands-on experience playing gamelan gong kebyar, Bali's most popular bronze percussion orchestra.

Material: You will be working on at least two of the following pieces:
   1) A semar pegulingan-style instrumental piece (similar to "Kompiang" which the students worked on last session, but shorter.)
   2) A kebyar-style dance piece.
   3) A newly-composed work designed to emphasize various techniques and textures.
Level: All levels welcome; Wayne will tailor the seating and learning rate as needed.
How to register: Just email Wayne - wayne(at)gsj(dot)org - that you'll be there; you can pay at the first session.

Wayne Vitale is a composer, performer, and scholar whose work has focused on Balinese music for the past thirty years.
