Playing the gamelan is a rewarding musical and social experience. It can inspire self-confidence, improve co-ordination and listening skills, encourage interaction and team-building and be a great chance to try something new.


Fun for all the family!


No previous musical experience is necessary, just a willingness to sit on the floor, take off your shoes and have fun.


Please note - gamelan taster sessions are suitable for adults and children aged six and over. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Each taster session runs for two hours.
