Weekly community music sessions – learn to play gamelan!

Join Good Vibrations for our Resonate Create community music sessions at Campbell House, Gartnavel Royal Hospital

10:45am – 12:15 pm every Thursday, From 20th April – 22nd June

Come along and play Indonesian gamelan instruments, make friends, create wonderful music and have a good time doing it! The sessions are free to participate and no musical experience is needed.

What is gamelan?

Gamelan music is the traditional music of Indonesia. The gamelan is a family of instruments such as gongs, chimes, drums, and xylophones.  The project is about team working and learning to play percussion instruments. Anyone can take part – no musical experience necessary.

Why gamelan?

Gamelan playing is very communal. It’s easy to pick up and make good music quickly. Participants have told us it helps them relax, gain confidence, make new friends, and feel more positive. Anyone is welcome, particularly people with disabilities and mental health needs.

What happens in a session?

Participants will work in a group setting to enjoy playing the gamelan instruments and learning to progress each week. A typical session will involve playing the gamelan together, talking about how we’re getting on and, of course, drinking cups of tea. It’s a lovely, informal group of people who support each other in their playing and create some wonderful music. At the end of the project, participants will receive a recording of the work they have created.
