Javanese Gamelan

The gamelan study group at Wesleyan has been in existence since the late 1960s. The class focuses on direct, hand-on experience of performing Central Javanese gamelan, augmented by occasional discussions and showing documentary films.

The advanced gamelan study group is made up primarily of the gamelan students who have taken the beginning gamelan class, but also includes music graduate students, alumni and friends.
