New Beginning Gamelan Class this Summer

Gamelan Sekkar Sequoia
New beginning Gamelan community music class:
Three Sundays (June 12, 19, 26) -- from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Sharon's house in Arcata (11th & D).  Cost for the session: $20.

No previous music experience necessary, no long term commitment required, no performance expectations (unless you join the performing group!). 

All learning is hands on, without notation. 

Sharon is delighted also to report that she recently acquired some new instruments which are particularly easy for beginners -- kenong (very big pots), kempul (medium sized gongs), ketuk/kempyang, and demung.  ("Colotomics" for you music theory types -- well, except for the demung).

Please give Sharon a heads up (via comment to this post) if you or anyone you know would be interested in joining the class.

Terima kasih ("thank you" in Indonesian)
